Food Truck (Mobile Vending)
Effective July 1, 2017, the Virginia Department of Health and Arlington County Public Health Division are required to issue mobile food unit licenses in the form of a sticker that shall be prominently displayed on mobile food units. This change was enacted due to the passage of House Bill 1625 during the 2017 Virginia General Assembly legislative session. If you suspect any food truck of operating outside of the state and/or County’s guidelines, we welcome your feedback.
