Donate To Street Vendors Impacted By The OWS Protests
If you’ve tried to get your fix from Sam’s Falafel or one of the halal or breakfast carts on Cedar St. at Zuccotti Park you may have said “Screw it,” once you encountered the crowds and police barricades. The vendors are still there although their customers have been whittled away since the protestors have their own (free) food source and they are all camped out where people such as myself used to eat lunch. The Street Vendor Project is trying to help the vendors in the park, and across the street lining Broadway and Liberty streets, who have seen their revenue take a dive. Find out how to help after the jump.
You can donate on the SVP site and the money will be used to buy food for the protestors from one of the nine carts that are affected. Basically you’re helping both the OWS protestors and the street vendors, so if you support what’s going on in Zuccotti Park but don’t want to actually go there, now’s your chance.
