Introducing the Toronto Street Food Project: A Social Media Campaign for Street Food.
The TSFP is a campaign to advocate for bringing delicious and diverse street food to the people of Toronto and supporting all independent entrepreneurs that want to sell it.
The TSFP is a social media-based campaign, the first of it’s kind in Toronto, enabling people to quickly and easily take action by sending letters &/or tweeting directly to their City Councillor.
Over a month ago Suresh Doss (Founder of Food Truck Eats) & I, announced the Street Food Block Party. This event was made to celebrate street food but also create awareness for the TSFP campaign. We didn’t mention this when we announced the Street Food Block Party because the website was not ready.
Please take the time to sign a letter & tweet your City Councillor today.
I am excited about this interview because it features Andrew & I. I also love it because we were both very honest. Since we both became entrepreneurs, it’s been a wild ride. I love TUM but it has come with lots of sacrifice & challenge. We both feel there are not enough hours in the day & we miss our kids! Having said that, we wouldn’t have life any other way.
The website will be updated with a ticket link by noon. We apologize for all of the confusion.
Also, this month we are changing the ticket format & introducing scanners. This means all guests must bring a print copy of their ticket. We hope that this speeds up the process & makes TUM more enjoyable.
Thank you & hope to see you all in April!
Our next event is on Saturday April 7 at 6pm. As always, it will take place at the Evergreen Brick Works.
Starting at 10am tomorrow, you can buy tickets from our website www. yumtum.ca.
Spread the word. Thanks!
