The Grateful Green Food Truck
The Grateful Green Food Truck
The Grateful Green Food truck will be the first entirely vegetarian/vegan and gluten-free food truck in South Bend, Indiana. There has been a call for more vegetarian and vegan food options in the South Bend area, and The Grateful Green wants to answer that call with delicious, fast, and affordable plant-based meals. We have the funding to get this truck on the road, but we need help with the last $10,000. This will allow us to design the truck to make it look like someplace you’d want to eat. This will also let us purchase the needed equipment for the truck in order to make you tasty juices, smoothies, coffee, soups, sandwiches, and more.
Jessie Miles, the owner of The Grateful Green Food Truck and an enthusiastic vegan, has over 17 years experience in vegetarian and vegan cuisine. Jessie is dedicated to provide a healthy alternative to fast food that will help slim waistlines but not wallets. Healthy food shouldn’t have to cost you a fortune. Food trucks are able to provide quality and gourmet foods at discounted prices. The Grateful Green Food Truck will offer customers healthy, tasty, and affordable juices, smoothies, and meals.
South Bend, Indiana is a great location for The Grateful Green Food Truck. The city is becoming more and more exciting by the day. We have a great art and music scene, wonderful breweries and restaurants, and fun events such as SB150 and ArtBeat. But, surprisingly, South Bend does not yet have a big food truck scene. This is soon changing – the trucks are coming – and The Grateful Green Food Truck wants to help show other food truck entrepreneurs and restaurateurs that South Bend is an ideal city with great people. With your help, you can not only help one food truck get started, but also help pave the way for other food trucks. More food trucks = more affordable and interesting food options = more happy bellies!

This funding will also be used in case we need pay for repairs or maintenance in the first few months of operation.
