Food Trucks

The City of Long Beach is developing rules and regulations for food trucks. The City has captured community input through engagement efforts such as a citywide survey and community meetings.


Food Truck Community Meetings – April 27th (in person) and May 3 (virtual)

The City hosted two community meetings to seek feedback on the development of food truck regulations for Long Beach. Feedback from the community meetings will help inform food truck regulations that address the needs and concerns of food trucks, residents, business owners, and other stakeholders. Community members were encouraged to join the conversation by participating in one of the two meetings. 

The community meetings were conducted in English with Spanish interpretation. The first meeting took place on April 27, 2023 (in person), and on May 3, 2023 (virtual). Below is a copy of the presentation in English, Spanish, and Khmer.
