The Minneapolis Health Department staff raised and donated the money to help 13-year-old Jaequan Faulkner pay for his $87 permit. They also taught him about food safety and gifted him a hand-washing station. So proud of how the city of Minneapolis, (where I Iived for 12 years before Tampa Bay), handled this situation.
Have you heard about the 13-year-old the City cleared to sell hot dogs? Jaequan Faulkner’s stand at 1510 Penn Ave N is officially permitted. He plans to take his food stand on the road to serve customers at places like the 4th Precinct. Our cops stopped by to support the cause. pic.twitter.com/S6ePP6VRlZ— Minneapolis Police (@MinneapolisPD) July 18, 2018
