Healthy Fast Food! "Organic To-Go" :: A vegan culinary pop-up designed by Mission Savvy to bring healthy food to Appalachia! Read more
This project was successfully funded on May 4, 2012.
Food Voucher Follow-Up
Bags, stickers, food and parties!!!!
Count down to trailer arrival and hittin' the road!
.....and we're off!!!!
Food vouchers for the food truck have been sent out!
If you contributed at a level where you are rewarded with 1 or more food vouchers you should have received an email from OTG@missionsavvy.com.
If you did not receive an email, please contact us at OTG@missionsavvy.com as soon as possible.
Kickstarter supporters, it's that time!!! The food truck launch party has been scheduled for August 22nd 6-9pm at 202 Hale St. Mark your calenders, more event details and tickets (per backer level) will be delivered soon!
We have been busy getting the truck on the road, testing out menus, testing out audiences, and planning for the future. Thanks to everyone who has stopped by and visited us the past 2 months!
At the same time we put the food truck on the road, the Mission Savvy team has been busy outfitting an organic juice bar/cafe in downtown Charleston. This will also be the home of the commercial kitchen for the food truck. Having our own commercial kitchen will make things SO much easier for us!
Stickers, bags, etc.....ARE IN!!! For those of you that requested them to be mailed they will go out beginning of next week (thanks to Casanda, our amazing summer intern) and for those of you who replied that you will pick up at the store, please wait until the week of August 13th because we will be intermittently closed for health department inspection and I would hate for you to come down and we're not there!

Hi "Organic To-Go" friends!!!! I want to give you some exciting updates.
The trailer has been ordered and should arrive in the next week and a half!!! The 6x12ft beauty will soon be on the streets of WV :)
This means that once the trailer arrives and we can operate at full capacity with refrigeration and efficiency you will all receive your food vouchers to use at any event location.
Tote bags and stickers have also been ordered so you will be notified very soon regarding pick up or delivery.
We are also working really hard to get into as many events around WV as possible this summer. If there is a well attended event in your area where "Organic To-Go" could fill a niche providing healthy fast food please send me a message and I'll see if I can make it happen. You all are my eyes and ears out there, I appreciate any heads up I can get.
Here is a list of events we are currently committed to in June:
- Live on the Levee every Friday night at Haddad Riverfront Park 6:30pm - 9:30pm
- West Side Farmers Market Saturday's 10am - 2pm
- Taste of All June 17th at the Charleston Civic Center
- FestivALL June 15 - 24th - "Organic To-Go" will be parked at a soon to be announced location every day during this event
Have you tried out our menu yet? Remember you can find "Organic To-Go" at Mission Savvy's storefront everyday - here is this weeks menu: http://missionsavvy.com/blog/organic-to-go-menu-may-31-june-7/
Lastly, I am also looking for volunteers in the Charleston area to help with one or all of the following areas:
- Organizing the "Organic To Go" launch party
- "Roadies" who want to have a good time behind the scenes helping us serve food at events
- Help in our kitchen preparing food the night before events - (easiest way to learn how to make gourmet raw vegan dishes!)
- Break down and set up at events
- Travel logistics and tour scheduling
Message me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I believe that is it for now - stay tuned in about 2 weeks we should be LIVE :)
Are you all as excited about this as I am???
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!
West Virginia now joins the food truck culture that has taken large cities by storm! "Organic To-Go" will integrate sustainable agriculture practices with "fast" food, improve how we treat our bodies by how we fuel our bodies and of course offer a consumption choice that is safe for our animals friends :)
So what's next? And how do you collect your rewards?
I've got a plan .... as soon as Kickstarter delivers the funds to Mission Savvy (which should be in about 14 days) it's full steam ahead on my end. There will be a separate blog for "Organic To-Go" that will document the progress of the trailer coming alive and further provide event and location dates.
Decal Stickers and Tote Bags: I will notify you by email once both have arrived at the store for pickup (yours will be mailed to you if you indicated such on the survey I sent out).
Bumper Sticker Design: You will be emailed a link where you can create a custom bumper sticker for the trailer within the next 3 weeks. Think about what you want to say!
Food Vouchers: Keepin' it green! You will be emailed the total # of food vouchers per your reward level.
Launch Party: Details are underway. For those of you who received free tickets, CONGRATS! For everyone else who would like to attend, tickets will be available for purchase and include unlimited food and beverages - plus some great entertainment!
Out-of-towners: There are a number of you who generously donated but live out of town, I want you to get some love as well! Expect personal emails from me about alternative rewards in exchange for food vouchers and launch party tickets.
You all deserve the best, thanks for making WV a healthier place for people and animals!
