Keep on Food Trucking

Food Truck Rights...Fight for them! 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.

The New Black BBQ

Looks like a new food truck is on it's way to the streets of Santa Barbara. Follow them on Facebook.
The New Black is modern barbeque that draws from the traditions and memories associated with the letters "BBQ," and combines them with evolved techniques and California style. It's a new take on barbeque, but you would never call it anything else. The food, like our patrons, is contemporary and local. We recognize tradition, but appreciate innovation. We do it simple; we do it right. You're welcome.
We just wanted to say thank you to everyone who's supported our project recently and from its inception. I know everyone is excited for an opening date, and the reason we haven't set one in stone is we want everything to be just right for the big day (believe me, we're just as excited as you are). We will keep you informed, but it should be very soon... - Chris & Nick
