What To Put In Your Food Truck First Aid Kit

Food truck first aid kits are not only essential when it comes to your employees (and yourself, of course) but when it comes to your food truck customers as well.

As a result, prospective food truck owners might be pondering this question: What does my food truck first aid kit all need?

While the answer to that question might vary depending on where you live, and the laws/rules that are in place for food trucks in your area, it would be in your best interest to follow along with dummies.com.

According to the website, basic first aid kits for mobile kitchens should have the following:

  • Adhesive bandages
  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Antiseptic wipes
  • Burn gel
  • Eyewash
  • First-aid tape
  • Gauze
  • Nonstick pads
  • Sterile eye patches

If you don’t have these ingredients, if you will, then it would be in your best interest to purchase them for your lunch truck immediately. 

While some first aid kits might feature some over-the-counter medications, you should not dish said over-the-counter medications out to customers. After all, if one of your customers has a bad reaction to the medicine, you will be held reliable.

With that in mind, having a first aid kit on board of your food truck is not only a smart move … but it is essential! You never know when an accident might occur, and your customer service will only be improved by having the proper first aid kit at your food truck — well, when someone needs aid, that is.

As a friendly reminder, customer service can make or break a food truck business. If you and all of your employees treat your customers right, then you should have no problem retaining customers, and receiving good reviews (of course, your food needs to be solid as well, but of course it is!). On the other hand, if your customer service game is horrible, then the bad reviews will follow, and if you have enough bad reviews, then you will seriously struggle when it comes to retaining customers. Plus, bad reviews could scare off prospective customers. In this day and age, quality customer service is a must, no matter what industry we are talking about, and especially in the food industry.

The biggest key in this department is to check the local laws/regulations/rules, and to incorporate a first aid kit based off of those things.

Whether you put together your own first aid kit or purchase one from the store, it is a must-have at a mobile kitchen.

The key takeaway: All food trucks need first aid kits. So, make sure to incorporate the first aid kit items above, and also check the rules in your area so you don’t miss something that you might need. More likely than not, the first aid kit ingredients mentioned above should do the trick.
