Vegan Food Cart Open

After a successful Kickstarter campaign, The Lunch Room’s vegan food cart is opening today.

The Lunch Room, a project that grew from a pop-up shop to vegan food cart, is opening its doors today in Ann Arbor, Mich. Founded by neighbors Phillis Engelbert and Joel Panozza, the food cart received a large portion of its funding from a Kickstarter campaign. The duo raised $10,696 in 30 days last month, and are now using that money to serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, plus baked goods from a downtown location at Mark’s Carts outdoor courtyard. The Lunch Room will operate seven days a week, with menu items ranging from fruit and coconut-milk smoothies to summer rolls with spicy peanut sauce.
