South Bend’s first food truck is hoping to give hungry people a healthier option than the fast food drive-thru when it makes its debut on Friday, Feb. 12.
The Grateful Green food truck will offer healthy vegan food such as juices, smoothies, waffles, salads, sandwiches and hummus. Each menu item costs less than $8.
Jessie Miles, who owns the food truck, told WNDU that she wants patrons to be able to enjoy food that they would normally eat, but with a healthy twist.
The truck will be parked near 113 E. Wayne St., South Bend, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., with the ribbon cutting ceremony planned for noon.
