Who are we?

We are Amy Tingle and Maya Stein. In 2013, we co-founded Food for the Soul Train with a desire to build community through creative action. Our vintage caravan, a 1965 Covered Wagon named Maude, serves as our creative hub and home away from home (when we are not at our studio in Northern New Jersey). With a unique menu of offerings for all ages, Food for the Soul Train invites everyone to the table. At the heart of it all, we believe that good communication, honesty, and transparency - and having fun! - are the key ingredients to success.
