Green Cash Mob: Everest MoMo


You can’t tell from the paint job, but this food truck is all about green!

You can’t tell from the paint job, but this food truck is all about green!

Our Green Team recently ran into Subash Yadav, the chef, owner and operator of Everest MoMo, the Valley’s first Nepali-Indian Food Truck in Arizona. Subash saw that we had compostable supplies and inquired about them. Turns out Chef Subash is on a mission to be the most sustainable food truck in Arizona.

If you have never tasted (or heard of) MoMo, you are certainly missing out and need to find the Everest MoMo Truck (dates, times and locations listed below). It is a delicious signature dish straight out of Nepal similar to a dumpling. Subash takes the MoMo a step further with his ethos “Let Food  be thy medicine” by making homemade sauces, using fresh local ingredients, cooking them over steam and making them by hand every single day. He even has options for everyone, vegan, vegetarian and meat!

The Everest MoMo Truck is pushing the boundaries of food truck sustainability. By making his MoMo by hand each day there can be a greater focus placed on food waste, making just as much as he needs and not needing to throw any away at the end of the day. With the FDA stating that 30-40 percent of our food supply ends up in the dump, every little bit helps. Subash also supports a circular, local economy by sourcing a majority of his ingredients from local farmers. Michigan State University says average food travels 1500 miles to arrive on your plate, seems like this food truck is cutting 1475 miles off that number! They also take part in the ugly produce program. This program takes vegetables and fruits that are perfectly good but not ascetically pleasing and uses it, rather than letting it rot because people think it looks to funny! Finally, Subash is using bio-degradable take-away containers that reduce the time of breaking down in a landfill by a substantial amount. As mentioned, he is currently on the hunt for a local, compostable option to cut it down by even more.

It is great to see the Everest MoMo Truck not only partaking in sustainable initiatives but continuing to search for better options and more strategies to improve. They set a great example as someone who has succeeded in their efforts to be green but understand that this is just the beginning.

Go out and find the Everest MoMo Truck this month and let Subash and his staff know how much we appreciate and support what they are doing for us and for Arizona! See the dates, times and locations listed below or an interactive map here!
