Liz and Zeph Courtney recently launched SNAP with the goal of rolling the city streets, slinging flame-grilled burgers and Chicago-style dogs made with the best local ingredients, in a food truck powered exclusively by biodiesel made with fuel from their own fryer.

They’ve accomplished half of their mission – they’ve been serving burgers made with meat sourced from within 150 miles of New York City,  dogs made with organic, humanely-raised meats, hand-cut Belgian style fries and panko-crusted avocado fries at Manhattan’s Hester Street Fair and at festivals and pop-ups since last year.

The only missing piece of the puzzle? The truck. They’ve purchased a Chevy step van, and have partnered with Tri-State Biodiesel to convert their fryer oil (organic peanut fryer oil, that is) to fuel it. Now they’re trying to raise $10,000 to finish the job of outfitting their fry ride with a charcoal bed, plumbing, stainless steel kitchen fixtures and everything else you need to grill and fry up the good kind of fast food.

Pledges of $10 or more get certificates for bio-fueled food of equal or greater value once SNAP is rolling. Check out their Kickstarter campaign here.
