Dessert Truck Works Fundraising for Grocery Store Push
Lucky Ant was founded earlier this year as an internet crowdfunding venture, and much like competitor Kickstarter, is also based on the Lower East Side. However, this newcomer is more hyperlocal in nature, aimed instead at helping small business achieve lofty goals. Each week they feature a different organization in the neighborhood that seeks some sort of improvement.

Coming on the heels of a partnership with subterranean eatery Grotto, Lucky Ant is now passing around the collection pot for the truck-to-store concept at 6 Clinton Street, Dessert Truck Works. Owner-chef Jerome Chang and his team are looking to raise $3,500 to help make the jump into local grocery stores. Contributors to the campaign can receive rewards like baking classes, macaroons, and even a private 5 course dinner.
With three days remaining, they are just over halfway to the goal.
