Toronto’s “a la cart” street food pilot project is a failure that should be shut down immediately, say senior city staff who also urge council to consider expanding menu options for all food vendors.
The report to the executive committee, made public Wednesday, recommends that “the A La Cart Street Food Pilot project be discontinued immediately, prior to season three of the planned pilot project.”
The handful of vendors still participating in the three-year project, which was to conclude at the end of this year, should be allowed to continue and apply for regular vendor permits “if and when they become available.” They should be reimbursed for 2010 location fees and pay no fees through 2013, on condition “they be required to continue to offer healthy, diverse menu options ...,” not including hot dogs.
