If the Committee votes to lift the caps, thousands of local New York City vendors will finally be able to own and operate their businesses.
You can help me and other mobile food vendors throughout New York City achieve our dreams.
When I first left Mexico and came to America 20 years ago, I never imagined trying to create a good life for my family would be almost impossible—and punishable by law. My name is Guadalupe and I am a wife, mother, and mobile food vendor.
I’ve worked jobs ranging from housekeeper to attendant at a dry cleaners.
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.
Please sign this petition and help us tell City Council to lift the caps!
We want to create opportunities and bring delicious food to New York City and we need your help!
