Philadelphia Vendy Awards to announce finalists tomorrow

The First Annual Philadelphia Vendy Awards will be announcing finalists on June 30 at 11:00 a.m. Be on the lookout as we announce who will be competing for the honor of being Philly’s finest street chef.

The Vendy Awards will be held on July 9th (3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.) at Piazza at Schmidts and will benefit The Food Trust, a nonprofit that strives to make healthy food available to all.  Last year, three Philadelphia vendors came to New York to participate in the 2010 Vendys where it was announced that the event would debut in Philly in 2011.

The Vendy Awards were started in New York City to benefit the Street Vendor Project at the Urban Justice Center, a membership-based project with more than 1200 active vendor members who are working together to advocate for and raise awareness of the many issues street vendors face around the nation.
