The People's Kitchen in Lansing

They've decided to add a food truck to the mix; People's Kitchen Street Eats. Check out the announcement they made on their Facebook page earlier this month.

Lansing Area Food Trucks

You might recognize this food truck. That's because it was The Purple Carrot food truck. Sadly, they haven't been in operation since 2019. The previous owners of the truck also own Red Haven in Okemos, who just recently closed their restaurant to pivot and "reopen it this fall under a new business model." However, this did open up the opportunity for People's Kitchen to buy the truck and start a new adventure in cooking.

PK Street Eats will have a new and different menu than its brick-and-mortar counterpart, however, its focus on serving yummy, high-quality food will not waiver. General manager, Douglas Mulkey, had this to say to the Lansing State Journal; "We're looking to maintain the commitment to the scratch kitchen, high-quality ingredients, and the best most delicious food you're going to have."

If you're chomping at the bit to try it out, you'll have to wait a little bit longer (or check out their location on Michigan Avenue just west of 127), because the truck isn't ready just yet. They're hoping to be open by the end of August. When they do open, PK Street Eats will have a small handful of "regular" spots, but it'll also do events and private parties.

Here's a sneak peek of what you're in store for at The People's Kitchen.
