WATCH: Austin woman turns FedEx truck into food truck for hospitalized kids

Becky Nichols has long been a hero of mine.

Back in 2011, I interviewed her about her daughter, Libbie, who had died a few years earlier, and the nonprofit she started in her honor.

Becky Nichols is keeping the memory of her daughter, Libbie, alive by donating mac and cheese, chicken and dumplings, and birthday cakes to area children’s hospitals. For years, she ran the Bountiful Bakery Cafe in Westlake, but now she runs a food truck called Libbie’s Funtime Food Truck. Laura Skelding/American-Statesman

At that time, Nichols was leaving cases of mac and cheese and chicken noodle soup in the refrigerators around Dell Children’s Medical Center, but in the past few years, she opened a food truck to extend the reach of the Loving Libbie Foundation.

I was delighted to hear this week that Nichols and her Loving Libbie truck were featured on “NBC Nightly News.”

I ran into Nichols a few months ago at H-E-B, and, as always, I was moved by her presence. If you see Libbie’s Funtime Food Truck around town, be sure to ask her about Libbie. She loves talking about her daughter and carrying on her legacy all these years later.

Libbie’s Funtime Food Truck opens at various locations around Austin, but it’s most frequent home is near Dell Children’s Medical Center. Contributed by Loving Libbie Foundation
