A Queens councilwoman wants food trucks and carts to display letter grades, just like city restaurants.
Karen Koslowitz introduced a bill in the City Council Wednesday, which she said would require the city’s Health Department to conduct inspections and give food carts and trucks letter grades of A, B or C.
“You go to a food cart, and you really don’t know its sanitary condition,” Koslowitz said in a statement. “Our current grading system works well for restaurants, and I believe it would be good for the City’s food carts as well.”
Letter grades have been given to restaurants in New York City since 2010.
