Washington State Food Truck Association

~ Advocating for Mobile Food Justice ~

The Washington State Food Truck Association was officially launched in April of 2015, as an advocacy organization, hoping to help food trucks succeed in this very competitive industry.  We aim to serve as a central hub of communication & information, a catering referral & information source, and will provide local and state-level proactive lobbying and advocacy.    

 

If you own/operate a mobile food business please support your own economic interests, and that of your fellow mobile food vendors, by becoming a member of the Association today.  Don’t be left out of the conversation as we work to move the Washington State mobile food industry forward.  Without your participation, this much needed state association will not be as successful.  If you look at what is happening around the country, and even in parts of our own state, the threats and challenges to this industry are very real, but we are ready for the fight.  Will you join us?  Membership application here.
