MEMPHIS, TN – Warming shelters are giving people a safe place to stay and get out of the cold, and one of the food trucks you may have seen around town is also lending a hand.
An email for help went out and within minutes, food trucks like Say Cheese signed up to help to make sure people in the warming center are going to bed not only warm, but with a full belly.

Terry LaRue and his wife Allison started the food truck in 2015. The only item on the menu is grilled cheese, a specialty of Terry when he worked in the Methodist Germantown emergency room.
