GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Food trucks are held to much of the same standards as restaurants you eat in.
So make sure to look for inspection grade. It will be posted right on the front window where you order. However, don't be surprised if you don't see an inspection grade for food vendors that serve only baked, sweet or frozen items. Those food trucks are not inspected by the health department. They don’t get checked because they're not considered restaurants. The Department of Agriculture regulates them instead. Make sure before you buy food you look to see how your food is handled.
Pay attention to these three indicators:
- Do workers wear gloves when handling food?
- Do workers use utensils to dish out or serve food?
- Does the food truck or place have a way to sanitize their hands between food and money handling?
