To fund a pilot project, Vendor Power Summer Internships in New York City. Interns will learn about the history of street vending, the kinds of resources available to vendors to help them succeed, and how to conduct community-building and advocacy activities that lead to changes in food systems policies. They will conduct interviews with street vendors and with experts in the wider food system, attend committee meetings to develop strategic actions, and educate street vendors about the new 1116 law which will enable many more permits to be granted.
