Local food groups gather food makers to discuss Wake County rule changes

Before you buy one of these, where will you prepare your food?

Recently, the rules have changed regarding shared commercial kitchen laws in Wake County.  These rules impact different segments within the food and beverage industry including food trucks.  To help understand and discuss these changes, Triangle Food Makers has organized an event, In Search Of A Kitchen with Community Food Lab, Advocates for Health in Action, RDU Mobile Food Association (RDUMFA), and the City of Raleigh.  The event will bring together local food and beverage producers for a discussion and interaction with other food makers.

Highlights on the event’s agenda include presentations from the director of Environmental Health Services, Andre Pierce, and the director of Piedmont Agricultural and Processing Facility (PFAP) about the new laws and what food makers should consider when searching for commercial kitchen space.

Before the event, locally made products and plenty of time to connect with other food makers, caterers, food truck operators and other local food entrepreneurs will be available.

The event takes place on Thursday, January 14th from 5 to 8pm at HQ Raleigh in Downtown Raleigh.  RSVP or find more information here.
