‘I just like putting smiles on people’s faces’: Brooklyn chef provides Thanksgiving meals for people in need on L train

A Brooklyn chef and her daughter handed out over 100 plates of food to people in need on the L train earlier this week.
Chef Bea, who has been cooking for over 15 years, helped hand out the food from the turkey, the candied yams and the stuffing that took her two days to prepare to make people feel loved.
"There are people sitting around next to you on the train sitting next to you on the bus experiencing things,” she told News 12. “Regardless of homelessness people are just going through, and life is hard and trying to make ends meet. I just like putting smiles on people's faces."
Back in 2019, Bea was homeless but still did give back despite only having $3 in her pocket.
"People on the train with us after the train was stopped were like we made their weekend,” added Bea’s daughter Kamara. “They weren't having a good week.”
Chef Bea says she hopes to have more chefs help her out next time to keep this going.
