"The San Francisco Street Food Festival is an event hosted by La Cocina that advocates for the creation of policies that support the formalization of mobile food vending in San Francisco.

Policies as they exist today are discouraging and create barriers rather than opportunities for the creation of viable businesses and jobs for San Franciscans. Street food has the power to bring communities casual, affordable, delicious foods made by food entrepreneurs who reflect San Francisco’s diverse population. Policies that support the formalization of mobile vending will work to connect communities throughout San Francisco’s spectrum of class and culture to the everyday food that we all eat and love.

Last year’s Street Food Festival in 2009 was focused on what could be possible for mobile food vendors in San Francisco. This year’s Street Food Festival in 2010 is focused on and advocates what should be possible and will highlight the people who make such wonderful food, who deliver it to you, and who nourish the connections throughout the community."
