Hello FestivalNet member,
Insuring your food truck or trailer can be a messy business. Legalese, weird gimmicks, and confusing rules are all over the place – and it can be difficult to make sure you're actually getting the coverage you need. To get some clarity, read on!
The face of a child never occurs to me when someone speaks of cancer. Yet, 700 children (and their families) worldwide receive that devastating diagnosis each year. Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation was started by a 4-year old battling neuroblastoma. She wanted to give "her doctors and hospital" money to help other kids like her. There's more on Alex's non-profit, below.

Top 10 Insurance Mistakes for Food Trailers and Trucks
By Joel Paprocki for insuremyfood.com
Let's run through the most common mistakes mobile food business owners make when they purchase insurance – as well as tips on how to avoid them.
- Buying The Lowest Price Policy You Can Find
Choosing low-cost insurance can – ironically – end up costing you a lot of money. Many low-cost policies have a very small list of claims they cover.
Since insurance companies are continually pressured to lower prices, they're also forced to reduce plan benefits. This hurts the relationship between insured and insurer, especially when claims are filed that aren't covered by the plan. Don't just jump at the lowest price – jump at the plan and agency that fits you best.
- Paying Extra For Additional Insurance Certificates
Commissary kitchens, landlords, event managers, and city health departments often require that you present them with additional insurance certificates.

The FestivalNet Giving Tree
It's my (Marisa) honor to have chosen this month's Giving Tree recipient: Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer. ALSF started with one lemonade stand, hosted by founder Alexandra ‘Alex' Scott in her front yard. She was four and raised $2,000.
She died at eight in 2004 of neuroblastoma. In her too short, but extraordinary life, Alex raised $1,000,000 and inspired a legacy of hope and cures for pediatric cancer.
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation will receive a portion of FestivalNet's gross profits this month. See all our apples up on our Giving Tree page!
