The Arkansas Heart Hospital in Little Rock has unveiled a new, full-time food truck called Food from the Heart. It’s the first hospital-owned and operated food truck in the nation, according to KATV.
The truck, which will offer a limited menu that includes Chef Coby Smith’s popular ramen, served its first meal on May 2 and will roll out service throughout the area beginning next month, the report said.
In addition, it will have pop-up locations, allowing the hospital to extend its reach to communities outside metro Little Rock. The truck can also be used in emergency feeding during a disaster if needed.
“Our culinary department is nationally recognized,” said Casey Atwood, directory of culinary services. “Providing the option of a food truck to businesses, clinics and other venues with healthy, delicious food was the next step.”
