TAMPA, Fla. — It is a big problem for a Tampa Bay area non-profit organization. 

The Autism Shifts' Food Truck, Artistas Cafe, no longer has a working generator. 

They have a short term solution for now, but the group will need to replace the $20,000 generator to keep the truck open.

The truck employs people with Autism to serve smoothies, coffee and espresso.

It is not the first setback for the non-profit, either. The cafe used to be inside a Tampa car dealership but was forced to find a new home in the food truck. 

The truck is available for bookings to raise money.
