Mighty Bowl, one of Vancouver's few food trucks, was burglarized late Wednesday or early Thursday at its location on the Clark College campus.

Co-owner Steve Valenta said someone broke into the trailer and stole about $1,500, plus an iPad worth about $400 that is used as the company’s point-of-sale system.

“It’s disappointing,” Valenta said. “It’s just a weird experience.”

The truck is parked east of Hanna Hall and south of the library on the campus, 1933 Fort Vancouver Way.

Kim Kapp, Vancouver police spokeswoman, said Mighty Bowl operators were asked to contact police to make a phone report to one of the department’s police service technicians.

The company dishes out hundreds of bowls daily of piping hot brown rice and black beans topped with a variety of sauces at its Clark College location and from its original food truck. The company started serving its signature bowls more than a year ago and was billed as downtown’s first mobile food truck.

This was the first time the business has been burglarized, Valenta said. Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to call 911.
