“Together we change the world.” Named One of the Best Healthy Food Trucks in Los Angeles, Plant Food for People (pffp), seeks to improve the health and well-being of all creatures, animals included. Enjoy their signature marinated jackfruit tacos, some crunchy cole slaw, or an order of loaded pinto beans. With a strong, supportive Mexican-American heritage, pffp is Los Angeles’ first and only all-vegan taco truck (2015).
“Healthy, organic, and always awesome,” this truck serves up freshly made dishes meant to fuel the body and feed the soul. From the Protein Power Bowl to Green Wellness to the Chocolate Lover Bowl, ADB utilizes ingredients such as nut milks and berries, cacao nibs, nut butters, and hemp seeds, and flax seeds, fruits, and goji berries.
*Note that Acai Dream Bowl uses honey or bee pollen in every recipe. Be sure to order without.

What do you get when you combine falafel, hummus, and traditional Lebanese street food? You get a food truck that’s committed to providing fresh, exciting, delicious fare, that’s what.
