Vancouver is about to get a new vegan food truck. The city has just awarded this year’s batch of 15 new street food vending permits, and one of them has gone to Culver City Salads.
Back in February, I interviewed Culver City Salads founder and co-owner Christina Culver. At the time, she said her planned food truck will be vegan and gluten-free, and offer salads, soups, curries, stews, and kale chips.
The Culver City Salads food truck will be located in the 400 block of Cambie Street at Victory Square, right by the downtown campus of Vancouver Community College, according to a map on the city’s website. Culver aims to open the truck by June.
(Update: Culver City Salads opened its food truck in June 2013, but it’s located at Hamilton Street and West Georgia Street.)
Started up in April 2012, Culver City Salads currently makes vegan and wheat-free entrée salads and brown rice bowls and delivers them in downtown, Gastown, and Kitsilano. The salads are also available at the Juice Truck, a food cart at Abbott Street and Water Street in Gastown.
Vancouver’s first vegan food truck, Loving Hut Express, debuted in October 2011 and hangs out at Pacific Boulevard and Davie Street.
