Mission Waco issues plea to find stolen food truck

Mission Waco posted to Facebook that its Urban Edibles food truck was stolen Sunday morning.

WACO, Texas — Mission Waco issued a plea to the community Wednesday to help find their stolen food truck.

According to their Facebook post, the Urban Edibles truck was stolen Sunday morning.

"This incredible resource hosted community gatherings, weddings, and all kinds of other events," the post reads. "It also served as a way to provide jobs and job training to teenagers and adults."

The post included a picture of a Dodge pickup believed to be the vehicle that took off with the food truck.

"It just puts a damper on the things we are trying to, where folks would take advantage of something and steal a food truck of all things. What would warrant you to steal a food truck is beyond me," said Carlton Willis, Associate Executive Director of Programs at Mission Waco.

Waco realtor Mario Gonzalez offered to step in to help by offering a $1,000 reward for anyone who knows where the truck is.

"Mission Waco's work has really touched me as a local born and raised here. I had my truck stolen recently too, and I'm still dealing with the fallout six weeks later. So I want to help where I can," Gonzalez said.

Mission Waco serves individuals and families experiencing poverty and homelessness.

"Whoever took it I hope they realize what they've done and decide to bring it back," Willis said.
