ST. FRANCISVILLE, La. (BRPROUD) – One night in January, the dreams of Chef Nikki Davis-Voigt and her husband David Voigt were shattered in an instant. The St. Francisville woman runs A Hint of Lime Tacos food truck.
On the evening of Jan.7, Davis-Voigt said that they were in a wreck while on the way to storage. The accident took place on Highway 10 around 7:30 p.m. and left the food truck totaled and their GMC Yukon with damage.
Davis said the ceiling caved in, floors buckled, walls separated, frames bent and the axles are broken in a couple of places on the food truck.
What happened that night has not stopped this husband and wife team. The food truck has been in business since 2019, and the plan is to bring it back better than ever. The local community is trying to do their part to help the pair land on their feet.
Davis described those that live in St. Francisville this way, “The people in this town understand the meaning of the word ‘community.’ When someone falls the people all gather to help them up, not to ask them how they fell, just to help them up.”
That community has organized a fundraiser on Sunday, Feb. 5 at The Oyster Bar. Friends along with four local bands are working together to help the Voigts get a new food truck. The fundraiser begins at noon and will include a silent auction. Guests will be able bid on items including a bottle of Eagle Rare Bourbon, a one-night stay at the Butler Greenwood Plantation and a tour of Rally Cap Brewing Co.
Hint of Lime Tacos food truck has served at Rally Cap and Tin Roof Brewing Co. in the past.
When asked what Hint of Lime Tacos unique, Davis-Voigt said they are sign language friendly, all of the ingredients are homemade and the meals are made from scratch.
