Numerous legislative bills pertaining to food service were recently passed in California. The County of Santa Clara Department of Environmental Health is committed to keeping you informed on how this will affect food preparation in our county. With the passage of Senate Bill No. 946, local authorities with sidewalk vending programs may not require a sidewalk vendor to operate within specific parts of the public right-of-way, except when that restriction is directly related to health, safety, or welfare concerns. This bill will go into effect on January 1, 2019. Please check back frequently as details on implementation are determined.
