SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER AT THE 2017 VENDYS!

WHAT ARE THE VENDY AWARDS?

The Vendy Awards is an intense cook-off between the most popular sidewalks chefs in the city and a fundraiser to support The Street Vendor Project.

Finalists are selected from public nominations. These vendors bring their best dishes to the event and ticket holders sample delicious offerings from each vendor before voting for their favorites!

WHY VOLUNTEER?

The Vendy Awards are run by the Street Vendor Project, a 501(c) 3 nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of street vendors across the city through community building and political reform. As a small nonprofit, we rely on volunteers to help create change and momentum, and we cannot do it without you!

As part of volunteering you’ll be able to enjoy the Vendys and all it has to offer (unlimited access to all the vendors) either before or after your volunteer shift!

HOW TO SIGN UP?

We are looking for volunteers for two shifts on Saturday, September 17th: Morning (8:45am – 1:45pm) and Afternoon (1:30pm – 6:30pm) as well as an Early Morning shift (6:30am-10:45am).
