Making A Difference: Nelson Co. Eatery Hires Employees With Special Needs


A brand new eatery has just opened its doors in Nelson County and it is making a difference for people with special needs. On The Go Foods is a food service business employing people with special needs. Every day, employees such as Cody Hawkins come in bright and early and get started on the day’s menu.

“It keeps me busy and I love it,” Hawkins told LEX 18. Not only is Hawkins being provided with a paycheck, he is also learning valuable new skills while at work.

“We bake our own breads, we smoke and cure our own bacon, we make our own dressings,” Rick Hagan, the Food Service Director at On The Go Foods.
