When Lukkah Churchill says he's going to do something, he truly commits. Whether it's going vegan or opening up a food cart even after it's impaled by a tree, Lukkah always goes in 110%. With the wildly successful soft opening of his new PDX food cart, Fatsquatch, in his wake, Lukkah knows what it takes to run a solid business. However, he couldn't do it without the help of the Portland vegan community, his family, and his wife and partner, Christine.

Coming from a family of environmentalists might not seem cool when you're a kid, but Monica Schrock may beg to differ.

Since the early ’80s, Seth Tibbot has played a huge role in the global vegan community. At a time when the word “vegan” wasn’t even a blip on the radar, Seth started selling tempeh at natural markets. When he developed Tofurky for like-minded “pure vegetarians” in the mid-’90s, he had no idea he would be the inspiration for future generations of vegan food entrepreneurs.
