The Arkansas Heart Hospital has a new tool on the streets that it's using to reach the communities it serves.

The hospital now has a full-time food truck, Food from the Heart, on its staff that will be rolling through Arkansas beginning next month. It's the first hospital-owned and operated food truck in the nation.

“Our culinary department is nationally recognized. Providing the option of a food truck to businesses, clinics and other venues with healthy, delicious food was the next step,” said Casey Atwood, Directory of Culinary Services.

Hungry locals can get the first bite to eat on May 2 at The Food Truck Stop at 801 S. Chester from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Little Rock when Chef Coby Smith will serve ramen.

Atwood says the truck, which will have a limited menu, will have multiple pop-up locations, giving the hospital a way to reach communities outside of the metro. It will also be used in disasters to help feed affected areas.
