Our fruit stands up to authority

Wednesday was a busy day with Food Forward members setting up a simple food cart as an example of something common in other cities but not allowed here.

The City told media that its report on street food would now in come in Spring 2014. The report was ordered by City Council for Fall of 2011. However, staff and councillors are working on a pilot for this summer under existing regulations.

See the previous blog below to email your councillor to ask for action. Join our CSA to help us keep advocating.
