Mobile food facilities (MFFs) are trucks, trailers, vans, carts, or any portable units used to prepare, sell, or transport food. All MFFs conducting business in Santa Clara County must have a valid permit from the Santa Clara County Department of Environmental Health (DEH). DEH conducts inspections of all MFFs that operate within the County to ensure the food is safe for the public.
As we maintain close communication with other jurisdictions, please note you will be unable to operate in Santa Clara County if your mobile food permit is suspended by another County or City jurisdiction. MFF owners must visit the cities they plan to operate, and obtain permits if required.
We will receive all payments, applications, and/or submittals during our business transaction hours of 7:30 am - 4:45 pm, Monday through Friday. For more information on our Mobile Food Facility (MFF) Program, please see the links below.
