The Street Vendor Project in Support of New Orleans Food Truck Coalition (NOFTC) & Slow Food NOLA
The Food Trust strives to make healthy food available to all. Working with neighborhoods, schools, grocers, farmers and policymakers, we've developed a comprehensive approach that combines nutrition education and greater availability of affordable, healthy food.
Street Vendor Project works to correct the social and economic
injustice faced by these hardworking entrepreneurs. Reaching out to
vendors on the street, we hold clinics to educate vendors about their
legal rights. Working to support a local vendors’ rights movement, we
organize vendors to participate in the political process that determines
their fate. Finally, we engage in systemic advocacy to help policy
makers and the public understand the important role street vendors play
in the life of our city.
The Urban Justice Center serves low-income and marginalized New Yorkers through a unique combination of direct legal services, systemic advocacy, community education, and political organizing.
