GOOD Ideas for Cities: Supporting Food Truck Culture In New Orleans

by Chappell Ellison

November 30, 2012

In recent years, New Orleans has become an urban incubator for creative ideas, drawing artists and entrepreneurs together to help guide the city towards a positive future. This meeting-of-the-minds atmosphere has revealed a simple truth about the city: New Orleans has a lot of archaic laws in dire need of a modern overhaul. 

When GOOD Ideas for New Orleans convened and tasked a team of creatives to tackle food truck reform, the group was unprepared for the outdated laws of the city. Not only does the city ban food trucks from its Central Business District and the French Quarter, information for would-be food truck operators is convoluted and hard to find. "It makes no sense that a city with a tagline 'We live to eat' would make it so difficult for food trucks to operate," says Kelley Troia, a member of the GOOD Ideas for Cities creative team.
