(276) 954-9701,Â unanimously approved by the Board of Supervisors, that formalizes the presence of food trucks in San Francisco. Â Some restrictions were added (can’t serve within 75 feet of a restaurant before 10pm) and other restrictions were loosened (reduced buffer zone around schools, can serve on college and hospital campuses). Â The aim of the law is to let food trucks serve more areas of the city, which were previously off-limits.
Just a reminder that Fort Mason Off The Grid starts back up on March 22, 2013! Â 5-10pm / 30 trucks!
On November 23, 2012, the Bay Area Mobile Food Vendorsâ Association was founded! Â They are working on becoming a 501(c)(6) non-profit and all Bay Area food trucks are encouraged to join. Â Here is a link to their Facebook and Twitter pages. Â This unification of food trucks couldn’t come at a better time as local governments, including the city of San Francisco, are proposing new rules for food trucks.
