Food is a social connector.
New Flavors Food Truck, a product of the Knight Cities Challenge and innovation in the Grand Forks, ND Community, is a generic food truck available to incubate new food-service businesses with a special focus on introducing new American residents with the community at large.
New Flavors introduces the culture of our newest friends and neighbors. It opens opportunity into the local economy. And it engages the community’s young and vibrant members who strive for diversity, inclusion and an abundance of options.
Immigrant populations in other cities have effectively integrated by sharing their traditional cuisine with those unfamiliar with their country.
The New Flavors Food Truck is an opportunity to celebrate emerging cultures while providing job and educational training to new Americans – as well as an opportunity to test, refine and incubate food service businesses at lower risk than opening a storefront location.
It’s all pretty simple, really. Here’s the best advice I got (from George):
How to Start?
Just do something.
If it works, do the next thing.
If it doesn’t, do something else.
