We make eating vegan fast and easy,
and we're a vegan food truck, so we get around.
The Sleazy Vegan means that our food is whole food plant-based food to go. We offer several items on our menu that are gluten friendly, enabling patrons with gluten sensitivities to be included. If any ingredient or menu item doesn’t meet the definition of a vegan ingredient or gluten friendly, it is called out in our menu. It means that while we may take hours, inspecting, cleaning, cooking our meals, we want it to be fast and easy for you.
We aren’t perfect vegans, not everything we wear is 100% vegan or always purchased from zero carbon footprint companies. We make local and sustainable part of all our decision making, but we don’t cook with all locally sourced bamboo tools, and we don't use 100% recycled or recyclable materials. We know that perfect can get in the way of progress and every time we make a choice that is “better,” we are helping to make the world better. Better is better.
We are a vegan food truck but still just a food truck, so we are using diesel fuel to get around and while we totally wish we could be 100% electric, that tech just isn’t attainable for us yet. We will power our 100% electric kitchen with a battery bank and recharge with solar when we can, but we may also need to burn gasoline in our generator to keep the batteries charged. This is how we’ll begin, and we will continue to work hard to improve on our use of fossil fuels.
When it comes to waste produced by running the business, and making our meals, our goal is to be as conscious and efficient as possible. Today's fresh veg left overs from wraps may become part of tomorrow's vegetable soup. And our vegetable soup may be transformed into the next day's dal over rice for our BOD (bowl of the day). We have built our menu with conscious intention to use as much of our food as possible. Additionally, we intend to share our food with soup kitchens and those in need, before having to ditch it. When we do have food waste, we plan to provide it to local farmers and gardeners for composting. Please reach out to us if you are interested in this relationship.
We want you to know that we are imperfect but trying to better our lives and yours. Even if that means you eat one plant based meal a week, that’s one more healthy choice for you, and one less contribution to "big Agra" and "big Pharma" and that matters.
