Raleigh, N.C. — Last Monday, Raleigh City Council passed a pilot program to allow food trucks to operate street side (or curbside). The pilot program will test certain markets within the downtown area where there is little or no restaurants to serve the public. The pilot program will be revisited in six months to review impacts.
