Boston Food Truck Initiative

On July 13 the city of Boston’s food truck initiative began with 15 new permanent locations designated in several neighborhoods to host a rotating menu of food truck fare. These new locations are in addition to City Hall Plaza and the Rose Kennedy Greenway. Food trucks will be offering breakfast (6am – 10am), lunch (10am – 3pm) and dinner. Dinner runs from 3pm – either 9pm or 11pm. Locations (below) with an asterisk next to them only serve dinner until 9pm.

As part of the Mayor’s Healthy Food Initiative, food trucks applying to participate in the program must include at least one healthy menu option that does not include fried foods, trans- fats, or high fructose corn syrup. The healthy menu option also has to include at least three of the following: fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, reduced fat or lean meats that are grilled, broiled or baked. Additionally, participating trucks were asked to provide a statement on their commitment to environmental sustainability and community engagement, and to consider joining the Mayor’s “Rethink Your Drink” Campaign.
