Mission Moment

Leaving behind their home, friends and well-paying jobs, Heath and Rhonda Allgood relocated to Bald Knob, Arkansas, to care for an ailing grandparent. Struggling to find employment, the Allgoods enrolled their three-year-old daughter, Ruthie, in the Bald Knob Head Start Center to focus on providing a viable income to support their family.

When Center Manager/Family Advocate Christina Willis asked Heath and Rhonda, “What is your dream for your family?” they said, “We would love to own a food truck someday!” With this goal in mind, Heath found a job at a local restaurant while Rhonda volunteered at the center and became active in the parent committee. As committee president, Rhonda led numerous parent-sponsored events, thus, developing leadership, communication and planning skills. With Christina’s support and parent education on money and time management, the Allgoods applied for a loan and opened “Allgood Eats” food truck in the summer of 2020. Word spread, and in a short time, they gained a reputation around town for their delicious burgers, barbeque and homemade pies.

Heath and Rhonda credit Head Start for the encouragement to make their dream a reality as they continue their journey toward self-sufficiency.
