The Shimmy Shack vegan food truck will get the star treatment Monday, Aug. 12, when it is scheduled to make a television appearance.

Fox 2 News will profile the mobile restaurant that offers an all-vegan menu of sliders, shakes and fries – as well as gluten-free fare – in its Meatless Monday segment during its morning broadcast.

“Fast, tasty, convenient food doesn’t have to be bad for you,” said Shimmy Shack chef Kirsten Johnson of Ferndale, who added it will be the first all-vegan food truck in Michigan. “We’re looking forward to sharing our twist on classic comfort food that everybody can eat and feel good about.”
