Street Vendor Project, Feeding Hungry New Yorkers, Is Profiled on Largest Public Radio Station in U.S.

NEW YORK — A “huge lifeline” is how one vendor described a program to put street food vendors to work feeding people in need of meals in a recent interview. That program, organized by the Street Vendor Project (SVP) and supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), has drawn media attention in New York.

Most recently, the SVP’s recent meal distributions were featured on WNYC, the public radio station that reaches a larger audience than any other in the United States.

In an interview with radio station WFUV, SNF Program Officer Alex Simon-Fox highlighted the compelling two-way benefits of the program. “It was a chance to address the serious food insecurity you’re seeing in a lot of New York City neighborhoods while simultaneously addressing the employment issues that are facing street vendors,” he said.

The Street Vendor Project food distributions were highlighted in a Spanish-language feature from NY1.

The program was also the subject of a “Hero of the Day” segment on WNYW (below).
