The Alameda County Mobile Food Program has begun posting Placards on all food trucks operating in Alameda County. Much like the Placarding Program for all fixed restaurants in Alameda County, each truck will be given an operational inspection, the outcome of which will be a Green (Pass), Yellow (Conditional Pass) or Red (Closed/Fail) Placard. The Placards are meant to give the public a snapshot of food safety practices so they can make informed decisions on where they choose to eat.
If you have any questions or feedback on this program, please email us at: DEHVehiclesPlacarding@acgov.org.
Please use the resources below to find more information on the Mobile Food Placarding Program.
Our inspectors will be using this Official Inspection Form (PDF - 301kb)* to inspect every food truck. Operators, please use it as a guide to help you avoid the violations in the left column, so you can earn a Green Placard when our inspectors see you in the field.
