About this project

Hi! My name is Corey. When I was younger I volunteered at a Homeless shelter and saw human suffering up close and personal. Since that day I have done as much as an individual can to help combat this issue. I have also always dreamed of one day owning my own business, more specifically a food truck.  When I worked at the shelter I quickly realized that the majority of shelters rely solely on donated food, often times it's food products that have just hit their expiration dates. I want to help combat this issue with my truck by providing freshly cooked meals to any person down on their luck. While the truck will operate as a business to paying customers who are able to afford their food I would like to take this opportunity to try and change the way business is done. Instead of fixed prices for meals I am going to implement a Pay What You Can/Will policy, which will allow our consumers to set the price they think is appropriate for our food and services. I am hopeful others will see the value in this company.

 I would like to locally source all ingredients. The Truck will operate as a Mobile Diner and will serve Breakfast and Lunch from:

 6am to 9pm Mon-Thurs.

6am-3am Fri-Sunday

Risks and challenges

A good portion of my life has been spent in Diners and various Kitchens, I also have family that will be working with me as running this truck is not a one man job. Some of our challenges will be getting people to buy into our system of giving.
