Being a mobile food vendor gives me the best of both worlds: I can provide for my family while being around them.
But a cap enacted in the 1980s limits the number of available food permits so vendors like me who want to earn an honest living simply can’t.
Instead, we get fined and are put on a wait list to get a permit.
And there’s a lottery to get on the wait list, and there are over 2,000 people on it—and people can wait over a decade to actually get a permit.
I’ve worked jobs ranging from housekeeper to attendant at a dry cleaners.Please sign this petition and help us tell City Council to lift the caps!
