About This Show
Do you daydream about dropping everything and opening a restaurant, or starting your own brand of condiments?

How did these folks decide to hit the brakes, start over, and become inspiring chefs, entrepreneurs, farmers and activists they are today? Hear their stories and learn how you too can fulfill your food dreams. New episodes available every Thursday. If you made a leap of faith to work in the food industry and want to share your story, please get in touch at why email@example.com.

Episode 33: Matt Shapiro: Protecting New York's Street Food History & Culture
Matt Shapiro was in law school when he read about a Midtown street vendor's cart being wrongfully confiscated by the police. He was immediately moved by the issue and began to work with the Street Vendors Project, an arm of the non-profit organization Urban Justice Center, that advocates for and provides legal representation to all types of street vendors in NYC - from food trucks to grocery carts to craft & clothing vendors. Join us as we wade through the issues of immigration and race, permitting and regulations, politics and public attitude surrounding many of our familiar neighborhood vendors.
