The rules of the road are being updated for food trucks in Halifax. Extended hours and new sites are just some of the proposed menu changes. We’ll get a taste of what’s in store for mobile canteens tomorrow at 7:15.

A new food festival is coming to Halifax that focuses exclusively on vegan and vegetarian cuisine. Veg Fest happens this Fall and brings together vegetarian eaters and vegetarian restaurants to share recipes, ideas and lots of food. Similar festivals (in other cities like Toronto) bring in people from across the country, and Halifax organizers Jessie Doyle and Diandra Phipps hope this inaugural festival grows over the years.

A new event is coming to Halifax that pairs up aspiring professionals with world-leading entrepreneurs and thinkers.
