Our Philosophy

truck-studentsThe Street Food Institute works with young adults and emerging culinary students and practitioners to develop the business and technical skills to realize their entrepreneurial dreams.

SFI students begin with hands-on training at SFI Food Trucks, where they learn how to make delicious and healthy food using sustainable business practices. Students are then encouraged to employ their skills in the community to innovate their own small businesses that provide more choices for nourishing, affordable local food. By raising the bar for street food, developing local culinarians, and building a robust and active community around local food, SFI seeks to make New Mexico a culinary destination.
