The Chow Train Travels For The Hungry 

Cheever packed her car and set out for the streets of San Antonio, finding people living under underpasses or in nearby parks. Not long after, night trips like that were becoming something of a routine for Cheever, who connected with a local group in San Antonio called Under The Bridge, and with them, every Sunday, served hot lunches under the underpasses in downtown San Antonio to the kinds of people many never give a second glance to. With an overwhelming need to help, in 2005, Cheever founded The Chow Train, with a mission to serve restaurant quality food to the hungry and the homeless of San Antonio.
