Enhancing Access to Healthy Food

Ryan Devlin and a team from the School of Architecture are working with the Street Vendor Project on a new, inexpensive and lightweight design for food vendor carts that is conducive to selling fresh, healthy food, with a focus on traditional Latin American cuisine. This participatory design project will engage with street vendors to develop a health department-compliant vending unit prototype that fits the specific needs of the vendors, and it will create an open-source document of the assembly system to allow more vendors to utilize the design and transition into a formal business model.
