School Talk: Mobile Food Vendors on School Sites

Food trucks are a great fundraising source, used at many booster club and PTA/PTO events, with a portion of the proceeds going to the school or school-affiliated group. While the prospect of fundraising using food trucks is tempting, it may come with a price tag that could include property damage, foodborne illnesses and injured event participants. Many times, school administrators and risk managers are unaware food trucks are used at school events because affiliated groups have bypassed established facility- use procedures, or haven’t disclosed that food trucks will be present in the event applications. If a food truck will be present at a school sanctioned event, it is important that a mobile food vendor policy is in place which sets forth guidelines for the safe operation of food trucks on your premises.
