Food Truck Enthusiasts all over the Washington, DC area are joining together in an effort to save DC’s Food Trucks and they need your help urgently!

According to the “Yes on Title 24” website, “Some very powerful businesses are lobbying the City Council to prevent us from serving you where you work. The DC Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA), on the other hand, has proposed vending regulations that would allow us to continue to serve you AND allow for a more vibrant vending culture in the District. DCRA needs comments on record for these new regulations, Title 24 of Chapter 5 . It is paramount that you voice your opinion on street vending and food trucks by emailing DCRA at helder.gil@dc.gov.”

Hurry! Deadline is TOMORROW!
