Serving hot and healthy meals for those in need

Founded in 2005 by Joan M. Cheever to serve the hungry, food insecure and homeless residents of San Antonio, gourmet, restaurant quality and healthy food on the streets of San Antonio. The Chow Train received its 501c3 nonprofit status in March 2011.


Cheever has been cooking for the hungry and her 

“street peeps” for many years. The Chow Train is a nonprofit

food truck that serves hot, healthy and restaurant quality

meals to the hungry and homeless and those individuals who

are temporarily homeless like the residents of the devastated

towns of Joplin, MO, Moore, OK, La Place, LA and those

who lost their homes in the Bastrop fires.
