WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Food trucks that were contracted to provide food service at Live Oak Pavilion and Greenfield Lake Amphitheatre concert venues earlier in the week were instructed to cease operations by NHC Environmental Health.

New Hanover County Environmental Health was informed that DLS Events, LLC, the company contracted to run food service at both venues, had two food trucks in operation at Live Oak Pavilion as part of a Tuesday event.

According to Alicia Pickett, Environmental Health Services Manager, Environmental Health staff visited Live Oak Pavilion Wednesday to ensure these food trucks had the required permits to operate in New Hanover County.

Staff noted one truck was still at the site and not in operation, and the other had moved to Greenfield Lake Amphitheatre for another event.

Staff requested proof of permits from the truck at Greenfield Lake Amphitheatre where the operators were set up for an event on Wednesday.

Pickett said that when the truck operator could not provide a permit issued by New Hanover County they were instructed to cease operations.

“New Hanover County has not issued either of those food trucks a Mobile Food Unit permit and these trucks will not be allowed to operate in the county until they receive one,” said Pickett in an email.

DLS Events, LLC is not a local vendor; however, Pickett said these food trucks could have been permitted to operate in other counties but were not able to produce required permits at the time.
