This information is for Mobile Food Vending Units (MFV) operating within the Austin city limits. The Austin Fire Department (AFD) conducts MFV inspections as part of the process for obtaining and maintaining annual MFV permits, issued by Austin Public Health (APH). Inspections are performed in conjunction with required health inspections. Both inspections are scheduled through APH. For more information on that process please visit: austintexas.gov/department/mobile-food-vendors
