Food Forward is incredibly lucky to be partnering with a number of individuals representing the diversity of Toronto street food, including existing street food vendors, start-up food vendors and event organizers, as well as dedicated activists, a lawyer, and a planner. Together we're working with Torontonians to make sure our politicians and bureaucrats are accountable and make positive change for diverse street food in Toronto and allow new jobs to flourish on our streets.
This Thursday, the Licensing & Standards Committee will be voting on a City report that would finally allow street food vendors to prepare a diversity of foods in the City. There are many media stories about this including this one with Darcy Higgins' and Carly Dunster's thoughts, and we'd invite you to join us at the Committee meeting to help push food further forward.
We wanted to share with you some recent work of our partners.
Take a look at this delicious blog by Kyla Zanardi to see what we did at the Street Food Block Party, see the vendors, and hear suppportive words from City Councillors that Darcy interviewed.
Andrea Winkler, who recently returned from viewing street food and policies in action in Los Angeles has prepared this insightful video profiling Toronto street food vendors. I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as we did. Please share!
