Veggie Patch Van Launches in Sydney

Sydney’s premier veggie food truck has hit the city streets fueled by solar power, vegetable oil, and the robust appetites of its followers.

Sydney, Australia, recently began a one-year trial for food trucks in hopes of making restaurant-quality food available at street locations, and the city’s new Veggie Patch van is answering the call of hungry vegans and vegetarians. The maiden voyage was September 27, fulfilling founder Karl Kooney’s vision of bringing healthy veg food to the masses while promoting local growers, and setting an example for sustainable living and eating. The van, which is aptly named “Spud” has been converted into a green machine from an old Winnebago, running on solar power and vegetable oil while it serves up tasty seasonal fare such as herbed falafel burger, raw pumpkin pesto pasta, and organic lemonade.
