Mobile-Food Resolution Moves Forward

At a meeting last week of Oakland’s Community and Economic Development Committee, members voted to push forward a resolution allowing for provisional mobile-food events while the city hammers out a long-term plan.

It’s an interim policy only affecting four districts, and this was merely a preliminary vote before it hits Oakland City Council, but you wouldn’t know it from the impassioned speechifying. Around a dozen people grabbed the mic, including new and old-school mobile-food vendors, representatives of the Oakland and California restaurant associations, nonprofit advocates like Rising Sun Entrepreneurs and the Oakland Food Policy Council, and event organizers Elizabeth August and Karen Hester.
