STREET VENDORS ASSOCIATION OF CHICAGO
Street Vendors Association of Chicago (SVAC) represents 150 street vendors who have been especially hard hit by COVID-19. SVAC established a cooperative kitchen vendors could use to produce their food with higher food safety standards than they could meet at home. Vendors have been producing food and giving it out freely in the community in solidarity with those who need it. SVAC has been paying the cost of ingredients. Funds will be used to pay rent and food to be distributed in the community.
