An emergency exemption by the Idaho Transportation Department will allow permitted food trucks to set up at rest areas and offer hot meals to truck drivers and other travelers.

ITD heard truck drivers were having difficulties finding hot meals with the restrictions placed on nonessential businesses during the stay-at-home order, said Nestor Fernandez, ITD’s Mobility Services Engineer.

Food trucks will be permitted at rest areas around the state, with as many as two vendors allowed at each site. They will not be permitted at rest areas that already offer these services and are under public-private management.
