When & Where
The Vendy Awards is a competition that identifies and celebrates street food vendors, and a fundraiser to support the Street Vendor Project of the Urban Justice Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The Street Vendor Project is a membership-based project with more than 1300 active vendor members who are working together to create a vendors’ movement for permanent change. We reach out to vendors in the streets and storage garages and teach them about their legal rights and responsibilities. We publish reports and file lawsuits to raise public awareness about vendors and the enormous contribution they make to our city.
