FY 2023-2024 Continuous Improvement Focus
Race Equity Initiative
The Community Development Agency is defining and implementing an equitable and effective program for the Food Microbusiness Equity Program. The Program will focus on implementing new regulations associated with SB 972 (Gonzalez, California Retail Food Code), including revised health and sanitation standards for street vending of food using compact mobile food units (food carts), cottage food operations, and microenterprise home kitchens operations. The program will offer outreach, education, and financial pathways to overcome barriers that currently prevent unpermitted street vendors from being permitted.
What does Success Look Like?
The barriers that currently prevent unpermitted street vendors from being permitted will be lowered through proactive outreach and coordination with all agencies, businesses, non-profits, community organizations to create partnerships and bridge communication between the County and the street food vendor community. This will allow for greater participation in local economy through permitted activities which benefits the entire community.
