Mobile Food Vendors / Food Trucks during Private Facility Rentals 

If you are utilizing a mobile food vendor / food truck(s) during your private facility rental through Urbandale Parks & Recreation, your food vendor must contact the Urbandale Fire Marshal at 515-278-3970 for an onsite inspection. (This must be scheduled in advance for the day of the rental).  

Renter assumes ALL responsibility and liability of food vendor(s) / food truck(s) at their rental.  Food Trucks should be licensed, carry adequate insurance, and pass a fire inspection.  Renters are responsible for the collection and retention of this information for their benefit.
