Last week, the widely popular Jamaica Mi Hungry food truck made a stop at Orient Heights MBTA station. The longtime Boston staple, that recently opened its first brick and mortar location in Jamaica Plain in September, switched gears from its famous Jamaican cuisine to take part in a Restaurant Relief Program.
Instead of jerk chicken or rice and peas, the Jamaica Mi Hungry food truck was parked outside of Orient Heights Station and offered hygiene items like Pampers, soap, wet wipes, toothpaste, shampoo and other essentials that are becoming increasingly hard to find at grocery stores and pharmacies. The food truck and its staff were also offering canned and boxed dry goods for residents.
While continuing to operate their food truck business, Jamaica Mi Hungry Chef Ernie Campbell and general manager Aquila Kentish, opened their first permanent location at 225 Centre St. in Jamaica Plain.
