The Nosh Pit Detroit
The Nosh Pit Detroit is a truck that is on a mission to change the world one delicious bite at a time. We compost, recycle and source local ingredients to offer a variety of vegan and vegetarian eats and sweets. Our mission and motivation is to help people incorporate more vegetables into their diet without sacrificing any taste.
Karen, Stefan, and Eric met in a Detroit area cooking group. Stefan was leaving his job in the music industry and Karen was leaving hers in sustainability services. Eric is design and technology guru. They all got together and came up with a food truck concept that combined Stefan’s creative cooking with clean healthy foods and Karen and Eric’s love of veganism and baked goods.
Although we are just barely over one year old, we have won several local awards including: Best in Show for Arts, Beats & Eats 2017, 1st place for our hummus at the Shawarma Fest in Royal Oak, 2016, 2nd place for the best restaurant at the International Veg Fest in Novi, 2016 and 3rd place for the best pumpkin recipe (Pumpkin Soup) at Detroit Food Labs, 2016. We were nationally recognized in 2017 as one of the best vegan / vegetarian food trucks by Mobile Cuisine.
Having a brick and mortar location would allow us to not only provide mobile cuisine but have a location where we can increase our ability to cater and have a location that the Detroit community can count on, year round. With your contributions, our vision is to not only have a brick and mortar location for food service, but a location that is large enough to host regular food truck rallies, offer composting services and support our local community.
We need you!
In order to continue at the fast-paced organic growth, we are looking to raise $50,000 to off-set the cost of purchasing equipment and renting property. We’re offering some fun perks to include each of you into our story of success. With your support, we can continue to make vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options accessible and affordable.
Other Ways You Can Help
You may not be able to contribute, but that’s okay! Instead, help us make some noise by sharing this campaign. When we have our facility, we can also use volunteer support for renovations and supplies. Thank you for being a part of the Nosh Pit family!
