“A little about me: My name is LaToya Ward. I was born and raised in Salisbury, Maryland. My father was in the military, and with me being the first born in female on that side of my family, I spent a lot of time with my grandparents. I watched and learned everything I could from my grandmothers and my mom in the kitchen. By the age of eight, I was able to prepare a full meal for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I love to cook, try new recipes and play with my grandmother’s recipes and mix them up. I started catering events in 2019 for different family members and friends which gave my God Father a great idea for a food truck. Since summer 2022 we have been on the roll with The Hook Up. We have all kinds of delicious food, but the egg rolls are amazing. When I was pregnant with my 3-year-old in 2019 I couldn’t find an egg roll that soothed my craving, so I created a few. Cooking is my passion, I find joy in feeding others. “Food is for the soul” is what my Great Grandmother Hazel Mae would say.”
