Special Project: Jemil’s Big Easy food truck Positive Reinforcer

Since 2011, Jemil’s Big Easy food truck has brought savory and flavorful dishes that define Cajun cuisine from New Orleans up to the streets of Seattle, Wash. For Next Generation Radio, Alyssa Mendez Batista hopped inside the food truck to talk to Candace Lachelle Johnson, the food truck’s Positive Reinforcer. Candace is daughter of Chef and owner Jemil Aziz Johnson and has been working on the truck since the summer of 2012 bringing her positive attitude and vibrant personality every day at lunchtime.
