Chef Lucas & Chef Auggie

My story starts in a hospital, about a year ago, as I was recovering from Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. While in the hospital I watched the Food Network TV and the movie Chef and thought food trucks were cool. When I got to pick my Make-A-Wish, I asked to work with food trucks to give back to all the people who helped me. I thought kicking cancer was a big deal, but it turns out, the really big deal is getting to help others. That’s why my family and I started Chef Lucas Food with the goal to “do good with food.” To learn more, visit We are partnering with Local Crate to help us further our mission to bring meals to families battling pediatric cancer. I know that food is love and it can be part of the healing process.

Also, I am lucky enough to learn from very experienced chefs such as Chef Auggie, from Le Cordon Bleu, whom has helped me create our recipes.
