This petition was delivered to:

New Orleans

make our laws friendly to food trucks!

    1. New Orleans Food Truck Coalition
    2. Petition by

      New Orleans Food Truck Coalition

      New Orleans, LA

Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for information about food truck events and our efforts to change city laws. 

We want more food trucks in New Orleans!

That won't happen with current city laws. The codes governing mobile vendors are out-dated and overly restrictive. Let's agree to change the laws, so that they encourage new business, benefit neighborhoods, and build the strength of our city's restaurant industry.

Make sure to tell us why you signed!

Food trucks are an important source of economic opportunity for entrepreneurs of all types. They can also enhance the culinary culture of our city, enliven streets, and provide food options in underserved areas---if we let them.

This petition is aimed at growing support for our cause in principle. With the petition in hand, we will work transparently to develop and negotiate specific changes to the city code.
