CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Chicken Mac Truck is embarking on a five day tour.
They teamed up with Rhinegeist Brewery to kick things off there.
A portion of the truck's proceeds will support Cincinnati's Fall Feast, which provides Thanksgiving meals, coats, and supplies to thousands of homeless families each year.
Fall Feast is held at the Duke Energy Center on Thanksgiving Day. The food truck will also accept coats and toiletry donations at each stop during the tour.
