MINNEAPOLIS, MN — His father describes him as a 12-year-old foodie, but for a while, he wasn’t able to eat at all.

Lucas Hobbs, 12, of Eagan has been battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a cancer of the blood. Make-A-Wish decided he could use a treat. Now, he’s using it to treat others.

Officer Craig Crisp and his partner Miquel Barnes went for the protein — they both got spicy chicken sandwiches from the Gastrotruck.

“It’s actually really really good,” Officer Crisp said.

Lines of other officers stood outside Minneapolis Police Headquarters, some enjoying mac n’ cheese and caprese sandwiches from O’Cheeze. But it’s the sentiment the officers savored most.

“We get some people saying they appreciate what we do, but nothing like this by adults, let alone a kid,” Officer Barnes said.

Lucas is here because of what happened to him — lymphoma. After around 40 days in the hospital in chemo treatments, his father Matt says Lucas had an idea.

“When we were at Minneapolis Children’s, food was a very difficult thing for him to eat, and he really struggled with that,” Matt Hobbs said. “He’s kind of a foodie, he loves food.”

So when Make-A-Wish said they’d grant him a dream, Lucas wanted to serve those who’ve served him, in a food truck.
