Support Street Vendors

posted Aug 13, 2013, 11:30 AM by BHC South LA
Community Financial Resource Center (CFRC) is hosting Community Chalk Art Project 2 Support Street Vendors on Friday, Aug. 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 4060 S. Figueroa. CFRC recognizes the need for a comprehensive initiative that supports all food entrepreneurs, as well as an advocacy campaign that helps food vendors sell their goods in low-income neighborhoods. The project will be used as a vehicle to educate the community about the issue of street vending in Los Angeles and how these emerging entrepreneurs can contribute to the reversal of the scarcity of affordable and healthy food in Boyle Heights and South Los Angeles. This effort will work towards a “systems change” in the City of Los Angeles where street vending is illegal, by developing programming that meets food entrepreneurs’ needs, while advocating for policies that help them sell on sidewalks and public spaces.
