DNAInfo: No one responded to request for Native food truck

"Plans for a hotly anticipated Native American food truck for Bowling Green have been scrapped.

The Parks Department dropped the idea after receiving no responses to a request for proposals they put out earlier this year, a spokesman said.

The idea for what likely would have been the city's first Native American food cart came from the National Museum of the American Indian, which overlooks Bowling Green.

The museum hoped to entice people to learn more about Native American culture by giving them a taste of bison, frybread, tamales and other traditional foods.

"We're disappointed," said Ann Marie Sekeres, spokeswoman for the museum. "Apparently running a cart is a more complex operation than we had anticipated."

Sekeres said she had expected several vendors to apply, including Smithsonian Enterprises which runs the museum's gift shop."
