Carson Wentz Is Launching a Charity Food Truck in Philly
Keep a lookout for Thy Kingdom Crumb, which will provide meals to those in need to “help people experience the unconditional love of God in a tangible manner.”
Coming soon to Philly: a charity food truck run by Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz.
Wentz, a devout Christian, announced over the weekend that he’s launching Thy Kingdom Crumb, a food truck that will roam the city and offer free meals to those in need.
The truck, which is green and features a crown and bible scriptures, will operate through the AO1 Foundation. Wentz founded AO1 in 2017 with the mission of “uplifting individuals and communities around the world by demonstrating God’s love for His people,” according to its website. Wentz also has plans to launch an outdoor camp for youth and a sports complex in Haiti through AO1.
In a promo video shared on Sunday, Wentz said, “The longer I’ve been in the city of Philadelphia, the more I’ve seen and the more connection I’ve felt with this city. I wanted to find a way to make a difference in this area and the community. What better way than than to provide free food?”

Thy Kingdom Crumb, a nonprofit, will partner with the Connect Church in Cherry Hill in an attempt to “help people experience the unconditional love of God in a tangible manner” and form “Kingdom-based relationships with like-minded organizations, people, and communities will increase the reach, capabilities, and impact of our programs.”
No word yet on what type of food will be served, but the food truck’s website shows a photo of a burger. So far, a calendar for the truck’s locations only include appearances at Lincoln Financial Field this fall and winter.
“The goal is to provide something different, to provide a community atmosphere, to just love all people,” Wentz said during a press conference on Friday. “I think the things that are free these days are kind of confusing — there’s no strings attached with this. I think people will see and experience something different with that.”
