Food truck rolls out
Lenny Kaplan serves a meal from the new mobile food kitchen operated by the Ice Angels ministry, which is led by Kaplan and his wife, Mary, lower right. A $44,600 grant from New People New Places in 2015 provided for the concession trailer, a van, and generator. The Kaplans make rounds to several Oklahoma City locations to offer food, clothing, and other necessities to underprivileged people. These photos were taken at SW Sixth and Shartel. Lenny Kaplan draws on previous experience as a hotel chef to make the meals. Skyline Urban Ministries provides food, and OKC-Mosaic UMC is the Ice Angels’ home base. The couple started out several years ago by offering bottles of cold water to street people one hot summer day. One of the recipients dubbed them the Ice Angels.
