A new plant-based food truck is parked on the Tulane University campus in New Orleans, where foodservice is run by Sodexo.
Bowlful serves up a variety of meatless bowls, including a Super Food Grain Bowl with baba ghanoush, sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, roasted beets, pepitas, wild rice and Champagne vinaigrette, and an Indian Grain Bowl with garam masala lentils, cauliflower, pickled vegetables, okra, taro chips and harissa cilantro lime yogurt.
“We knew that a plant-based food truck would attract more than just vegans and vegetarians,” Kelsey Rosenbaum, regional campus dietitian at Tulane, said in a statement. “Our goal was to create great food that everyone could enjoy.”

Consumer demand for plant-forward fare remains on the rise. Interest is highest among millennial consumers, though 27% of Gen Zers say they are including more plant-based items in their diet than they did two years ago, according to Technomic’s most recent Generational Consumer Trend Report.
Bowlful is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
