Food Truck Friday-Lulu's Local Eatery

I found today's Food Truck Friday on Kickstarter actually.  A St. Louis food truck with a unique idea that needed funding.  Lulu's Local Eatery now drives around with their own herb and veggie garden right on the roof!
Lulu’s is known for working with local farmers wherever possible to provide the highest-quality, freshest ingredients to their customers. employ earth-friendly practices and supply quality products.  Adding a green roof to their truck seems like a perfect fit!

Using a lightweight aluminium structure, the rows of planters on Lulu’s roof garden grow strawberries, rosemary, lavender, mint, mustard greens and other herbs that are used in each of the restaurant’s signature dishes. The garden is fitted with hydroponics and sub-irrigated planters.  every morning they climb up to tend to the gardens, or to harvest the edible goodies for the menu.

 Lulu's has a large selection of menu items that are made from scratch using all-natural, organic and local ingredients.  Noodles bowls, pita wraps, quinoa bowls, salads, and sweet potato curly fries comprise their vegatarian menu.  Because they try to maintain the freshest ingredients, all items are on a rotational basis.   Lulu’s specialises in sustainable catering and events as well, customising services to fit your individual catering needs.

I know I'd love to have this truck at my special events. So if you are lucky enough to be in St. Louis take a look at their website and find out where they are going to be because you don't want to miss this fresh menu!

Till next time,
