Prior to operation, a food vendor who has received a license from NYCEDC to operate in Hunts Point Landing must obtain a Mobile Food Vendor (MFV) Unit Permit through NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, which indicates that the unit has passed an inspection and meets Health Code Requirements. To obtain this permit, a food vendor must first meet the Department of Health’s prerequisites. Information about obtaining a MFV Unit Permit is located here.
