Vegan Food Cart

A new vegan food cart in Ann Arbor, Mich., is raising funds through Kickstarter.

Next-door neighbors and vegans Phillis Engelbert and Joel Panozzo recently started a campaign on the fundraising site Kickstarter to make their vegan food-cart dream a reality. The Lunch Room was founded in early 2010 with the Ann Arbor duo making meals for large groups of friends; by October, the project had grown into a pop-up shop, operating on a reservations-only basis around the city. Now Engelbert and Panozzo are raising money to serve their vegan breakfasts, sandwiches, and baked goods alongside other food carts in one of the city’s courtyards. The Lunch Room plans to open later this spring.
