A mobile raw bar on the Cape needs a final funding push to get moving. The team behind Shuck FoodTruck has been working for a year and a half to get the truck ready, and a recently launched Kickstarter campaign will help fund the vinyl wrapping for the truck.

Julie and Ben Trusiak set about this project with a mission to bring fresh, local, and mobile seafood to Wellfleet, and while they have been able to build out the kitchen and the electric, water, and propane systems for the truck, the vinyl wrap will be the final touch.

"We have been putting both of our salaries together building a 1990 Chevy Grumman into a food truck for catered events, weddings, and day to day vending. We are 95% done with the interior kitchen, sans a few minor details," they wrote on the Kickstarter page.

Shuck FoodTruck still has to go through permitting and meetings with the health department, plus a fire inspection, among other approvals, before it can start catering to the Cape community. The Kickstarter campaign has two week remaining with just over $2,000 until the goal.
