The Lunchroom by Phillis Engelbert and Joel Panozzo is an up and coming Ann Arbor Food Cart featuring an all vegan menu with breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack offerings.
Their cart will be located behind Downtown Home and Garden in late April or Early May.
Until then, they are keeping busy with their fundraising efforts to help raise money to build their custom food cart.
They have launched a successful Kick-Starter Campaign. Kick-starter is an online fundraiser website, which allows people to create an online fundraiser and it makes it really easy to receive donations for a creative project. Transactions are secure and run through amazon.com
They have also hosted several fundraiser events featuring their vegan offerings.
They told me that the cart they are building will cost around $8000. So far they have raised around $4000 and they are hoping to be able to receive enough large and small donations on kickstarter to make their dream a reality.
Any amount of donation will be much appreciated and it will help get a small local food start-up off the ground.
Here are some of their offerings.
Coconut-milk yogurt with granola
Fruit juice/coconut-milk yogurt smoothie
cherry-oatmeal breakfast cookies
homemade bagel with spread,
