Hungry? L.A. Taco's Got Something For Ya

The local truck vends its Mexican-style offerings out in Sarver, Kittanning and Indiana, Pa.



 


L.A. TACO TRUCK OFFERS MEXICAN-INSPIRED FARE
Despite our city's unpredictable weather, several food vendors continue to brave the conditions to feed the masses. One such business is L.A. Taco, which predominantly vends in and around Sarver, Kittanning and Indiana, Pa. The truck crew makes tacos, of course, in addition to other filling dishes, from the current pumpkin chili special to staples including quesadillas and burritos.

To locate the L.A. Taco truck, follow its Twitter feed and/or our food-truck tracker.


SIGN UP FOR A CSA
As a reminder that spring's just around the corner, several local farms and cooperatives have opened up CSA registration. A few favorites include Penn's Corner Farm Alliance and Kretschmann Farm; each has posted package terms online, noting start and end dates as well as fees.


LOCAL CO-OP SCREENS FOOD FILM
The East End Food Co-Op will screen "Hungry for Change" next Friday at Gemini Theater. The film will appeal to those who've resolved to eat healthier this year — or just learn more about what they're eating. Take in the movie produced by the filmmakers of "Food Matters" and enjoy samples of Fresh from the Farm Juices' namesake product. "Hungry for Change," which covers the topics of health, dieting and food in general, features interviews with various health experts, such as chef/restaurateur Jamie Oliver.

("Hungry for Change" will be screened at 7501 Penn Ave., Point Breeze; free; reservations required: 412/242-3598, facebook.com)
