Spicing things up again.

Hi everyone

Took a short hiatus there to move house (eugh), battle tooth extraction (owwee) and handle Christmas with a TWeenager  (sigh).

Now ready to restart the food truck project and campaign and am so excited to get it rolling.

My time out has given me great food for thought (see what i did there? 🙂 ).

What I’ve realised is I really do need help to bring this to fruition. I like to think i’m superwoman but in reality there is SO much to do and achieve that I really do need to build a wonderful team who all are excited about food, helping others and bringing something new and exciting to Wiltshire. So please get in touch if you think that’s you.

Simply put, I need your help.

The food truck really is about people at the very heart of what it does.
As well as selling delicious food at Markets, festivals and fetes, every appearance of the Wiltshire food truck project will be accompanied by Caribbean music and opportunities to learn. The cultural education program will see the truck launched into schools, colleges and adult education centres across Wiltshire, delivering up cultural food, music and history. This is also a not-for-profit venture, delivering rewards directly back into the community helping young and single mums. Employing Local people for local jobs and always using local produce. Yep, It’s all about the people.

Why would you not want to help spread the word? 🙂

I want to get involved wiltsfoodtruckSo . . . If this resonates with you and your soul is leaping forth as you read this, I really need your help.

How Can Food Trucks Help Build Food And Beverage Brands?

Found this article via @GuerrillaCanteen’s blog, a great article on the history of food trucks. Had to share, please enjoy x

TASTE BUZZ

Food Trucks are white-hot popular since the first one appeared on L.A. streets in 2009. Exploding out of southern California, they now enjoy dedicated “corrals” and festivals, feature-length coverage in, among many other, National Geographic and Fast Company and even landed a starring role in Chef (2014). Uber food truck Manna One travels to disaster sites and operates on a grand scale: a tractor-trailer kitchen with multiple support trucks, it feeds tens of thousands of disaster victims a day. The marketer who understands the history, benefits and limitations of the food truck can best ensure success if the food truck is part of their marketing plans.

What is the Wiltshire food truck project?

WILTSHIRE FOOD TRUCK PROJECT
Thanks so much for dropping by to learn about the Wiltshire food truck project.

The first thing to say is that this is a community focused project and we really do need your support to make this happen. We are soon going to be launching a crowdfunding campaign with the aim that local people and businesses will get behind me and support this exciting project for Wiltshire.

What is a food truck?
It’s an American term for a catering van (think burgers / kebabs), but selling modern cuisine, from a vehicle.

So what is the Wiltshire food truck project?

I would like to acquire a van, convert it into a food truck and sell modern Caribbean food across Wiltshire.

As well as selling delicious food the truck will deliver a full cultural experience by playing music from across the Caribbean wherever it is located (parked). I would like the truck to deliver on a schools integration project. Taking the food truck into schools across Wiltshire and letting children experience a little bit of the Caribbean culture by way of food sampling and music education. We’re looking to run cooking workshops and music workshops. Profits from the truck will go directly back into the community by giving to and assisting young & single mums with children in need.

WHY A FOOD TRUCK?
A restaurant takes a lot of money to set up and is in one static location that people can’t always get to conveniently.
A food truck allows us to reach more people, in various locations. Literally bringing the food into the community.

WHAT FOOD CAN YOU BUY?
There is a shortfall in Caribbean outlets across Wiltshire, so we would like to sell traditional Caribbean food, but done with a modern twist. Favourites include: Jerk Chicken, Jerk Pork, Jerk Quorn, Plaintain, Curry Goat, Stew Chicken etc…
I have created some really tasty modern menu ideas that I can’t wait for you to experience.
See reviews of my food here.

A BIT MORE INFO:
At the heart of this project is ‘Family and Community’.
It will be run by local people using locally sourced produce.

The food truck will also attending local festivals, fetes, carnivals and big events within the community, delivering a modern twist on Caribbean food.

MISSION STATEMENT:

“To Provide a cultural experience to the Wiltshire area through food and music”
