#NolaNeighbors want more food trucks in New Orleans!

The food truck revolution is sweeping the nation, but street food entrepreneurs in the Crescent City are facing onerous, out-of-date, and anti-competitive laws that make it nearly impossible to thrive.  It’s time city council revise these laws to help support the growth and success of food trucks and other mobile vendors, create economic opportunity and continue to build a vibrant local culinary scene.


Join entrepreneurs, advocates and foodies on July 24 to learn more about how mobile food businesses build communities, the need to reform the city’s laws, and what you can do to help the food trucks roll in New Orleans.


Food trucks will serve dinner after the symposium. The first 100 attendees through the door will receive a voucher good towards purchases at participating food trucks. Good Work Network will also be present to connect with anyone interested in breaking into the mobile food business.

Hosted by the Institute for Justice, Neighborland, New Orleans Food Truck Coalition, Good Work Network, Ashé Cultural Arts Center, Southern Food and Beverage Museum and the Oretha Castle Haley Merchants & Business Association.
