Advocate for an Urban Farm License
Create a tool-kit for food businesses to navigate the current permit process
IMPROVING THE PROCESS FOR CHICAGO’S
LOCAL FOOD ENTREPRENEURS
On December 4, food vendors, advocates, and city agencies attended the IIT Institute of Design’s Communication Design class' final presentation mapping out the current food business licensing processes in Chicago. We greatly appreciate the input from the Asociación de Vendedores Ambulantes(AVA), the Chicago Department of Public Health, the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, and the Institute for Justice for helping to identify opportunities for working together to support emerging food businesses. A big “thank you” to Professor Tomoko Ichikawa and your hardworking, talented, and committed students. We look forward to partnering to continually improve the city's license and permit process.
