Description

The DMV Food Truck Association is a 501(c)(6) nonprofit organization that exists to enrich and promote the regional food truck industry by serving our members and engaging the community. The FTA has been fighting for food truck entrepreneurs and small businesses since 2010 and today represents more than 75 members across the DMV.
The FTA is experiencing an exciting time of growth from its beginnings as a small advocacy group into one of the leading food truck associations in the county with the FTA working to expand member benefits, introduce new programs and increase community outreach.
