More Food Police: CA Lawmaker Says Food Trucks 'Threat' To Kids' Health

The California legislature introduced a bill last Tuesday that would ban mobile food and beverage trucks within 1,500 feet of elementary and secondary schools. California has the nation’s largest and most diverse school system, so banning mobile food trucks from operating within 1,500 feet of schools would put food trucks out of business by severely limiting where they could operate. The bill was introduced by Bill Monning (D-Carmel).

A statement from Monning’s office reads : “Mobile food vending poses a threat to student safety as well as student nutrition. Mobile vending near school campuses incentivizes students to leave school grounds, which increases students’ exposure to off-campus hazards such as heavily trafficked streets.”
