People's Choice Poll

Nearly 2,000 Cambridge residents, employees, and visitors participated in the People's Choice Poll to vote for food trucks they would like to vend at select public locations. 

The People's Choice Poll is Now Closed. 

Food Truck Schedules Will Be Announced in Early March. 


How The People's Choice Poll Influences Food Truck Scheduling

The internal review committee has devised a point system to ensure that a diverse offering of trucks is available at each site. At the time of application, trucks were reviewed according to which program goals their business met, as detailed on the Food Truck Pilot webpage. Trucks that receive the most votes through People’s Choice Poll will be awarded a point that will be added to their existing total. The internal review committee will schedule all top point-earning trucks first and will work to ensure that all interested trucks get a chance to vend.
