ROCHESTER, NY – An organization that was instrumental in forming the city’s food truck scene has disbanded.
The Rochester Food Truck Alliance is no longer operational, said Lizzie Clapp, who ran the organization with Veronica “Ronnie” McClive for the past five years. The women are co-owners of the Le Petit Poutine food truck.
McClive created The Rochester Food Truck Alliance (ROCFTA) to lobby for laws favorable to food trucks. Among its accomplishments was successfully advocating for the city to increase the number of locations where trucks were allowed to vend downtown; there are now 12 in all.
“Ronnie and I have found that after five years, ROCFTA accomplished the initial goals of creating permanent vending laws in the city of Rochester, and introducing food trucks into the larger local food and restaurant community,” Clapp said via email.
