SANTA CLARA (KCBS) — A new report by the Santa Clara County Civil Grand Jury calls for more oversight of food truck operations and finds their regulations to be insufficient.

While trucks are required to sanitize their kitchens, there is no check-list for compliance.

The report reveals there are 350 food trucks operating in the county, and recommends that a better way to track those trucks be implemented in order for them to be subject to the random inspections.

Kim, of Kim’s Catering, spoke to KCBS after Wednesday’s lunch rush while dressed in hip waders to hose down her pots and pans.

She serves customers by the county jail,  and hadn’t heard of the grand jury report.  Kim said the county shouldn’t be too intrusive.

Kim said everyone keeps their own truck clean, adding that she has a permit, because they want customers to return. If it’s not clean she said customers would go somewhere else.
