Food vendor hopes to make a difference in the lives of the homeless

TUCSON-A food vendor is fighting hunger with a truck.

The owners of Kadooks served lunch to the homeless in Tucson Saturday out of their food truck at Santa Rita Park.

They hope to be able to provide meals more frequently.

A local church organization also offered turkey dinners.

Vic Ort said the Costa Rican fusion meal from Kadooks was the best meal he's had in a long time.

Morningside Baptist also set up at the park to hand out clothes, blankets and turkey meals.

"I think they're fabulous. If it wasn't for them, you wouldn't get fed out here," said Dolores Lopez.

Tony Trent said he's been homeless for most of his life and he hasn't seen this kind of generosity in other places he's lived.

"And this is the most giving community I've ever been in. It's just like I said amazing," said Trent.

"I think because of times that we've had it difficult in our lives that we empathize," said Kristine Duke, owner of Kadooks.

Duke and her husband Ray hope to feed the hungry on a regular basis.

"We've got to do something we've got to provide something back to society," said Duke.

Kadooks will be back to Santa Rita Park to give out free meals on December 10.
