To help licensed Wisconsin food cart and food truck vendors implement best practices during the COVID-19 emergency, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Division of Extension Food Systems Program and the City of Madison developed the COVID-19 Resource Guide for Licensed Food Cart and Food Truck Vendors in Wisconsin.
Guide topics include:
- WI Vending Regulations
- Child Care
- Health and Safety Recommendations
- New Business Opportunities and Delivery Guidelines
- Loans, Grants and Additional Resources
If you are not a licensed food cart or food truck vendor and you are interested in starting a food cart or food truck, please contact your local health department or the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) for information on licensing requirements at DATCPDFSlicensing@wisconsin.gov or (608) 224-4923. Before food carts and trucks may operate in Wisconsin, they must be licensed by the appropriate state or local authority.
