hey...assemblymember monning - go truck off

we have to fight for food truck rights. just say no to AB1678!
even though house minority leader nancy pelosi recently called food trucks "a model for small business innovation," other california legislators are considerably less bullish on the whole phenomenon.

last week, carmel assemblyman bill monning introduced a bill prohibiting food trucks from selling food within 1,500 feet of an elementary or secondary school between the hours of 6am and 6pm.

monning's bill is intended to be part of the state's effort to create a healthier eating environment for its school children. some educators feel that a whole slew of newly implemented programs--such as lausd's new, district-wide healthy lunch menu or santa barbara's revolutionary s'cool food initiative--are being undermined by the presence of nearby food trucks slinging significantly less healthy options. - huffpo

apparently assemblyman monning has not visited and sampled the food from santa barbara's mobilecafesb which is a program of the santa barbara school districts' nutrition services department, under the direction of nancy weiss, director of food service. they provide a delicious and nutritious option for three area schools, and appears at local events like earthday.
