A few years ago Nebraska's first all vegetarian food truck was funded through kick starter . We have had a blast setting up and feeding yummy delicious local food . We did notice right away how loud the gas generator was . We also noticed that finding places to plug in somewhere was also a bit of a challenge at times . Whether using a gas powered generator or plugging in somewhere we were still going against what we believe in and trying to get away from..FEEDING OFF OF THE GRID! After a little research. We found that a solar powered generator would suit us just fine. We are once again reaching out to you to help us make this happen.Should their be extra funds left over.They will be used to make food bike carts to sell our food and employee more people. It's a win win for all.

Gracias.

Risks and challenges

Some of the risks are not having sunshine on the days of food truck events.Another unique challenge might be setting up on side of a tall building where there is no direct sun .That will hopefully not be a problem as the generator can hold a charge for at least a few days. We still have tshirts/bags and gift certificates that folks agreed to pick up from last kick starter to help keep mailing cost down. If you have donated in past and would now rather have your reward mailed to you.Please notify us and they will be mailed out no later than June 30 of 2015.
