California Food Truck Seabirds Launches Kickstarter

The award-winning mobile eatery is hoping to move into a permanent location in Orange County.

After almost two years on the road, Southern California food truck Seabirds is hoping to bring its vegan wares to a brick-and-mortar location—and is turning to community-fundraising platform Kickstarter for help. The organic eatery, which sources its produce from local Orange County farms, is hoping to receive $100,000 by April 30 in order to cover the cost of converting a Santa Ana shoe shop into a full-fledged restaurant. Though the Seabirds Truck has seen success as a mobile operation—the truck has won several awards and was featured on the Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race—founder Stephanie Morgan says a restaurant space will enable her establishment to elevate its much-loved menu and provide its customers with a more stable and comfortable dining experience.
