the overall aim of this research study was the development of a street food vending model (SFVM) that considers nutrition, hygiene/safety, business and operational aspects of street-food vending. An evidence-based approach, i.e. "systematically collected proof", was used to inform the development of this model.
street vendors and consumers were interviewed about preferences, selling
and purchasing habits followed by observations of practices (phase 1). Interviews
and focus groups were conducted with government officials and literature
was reviewed to determine available regulations and policies for street food
(phase 2). Participatory methods involving street food vendors were used
to validate the findings and inform the development of the SFVM (phase 3). The
from the previous phases were integrated within a sociological frame work
to develop the proposed SFVM (phase 3). The components of the proposed SFVM
out of four parts i.e. a business component, a food and nutrition component,
a hygiene component and a vending cart.
the four components take into account various elements of the socio-ecological framework, namely intrapersonal/individual, interpersonal, the physical environment/community as well as the policy environment.
the proposed SFVM should be piloted, evaluated, adapted and rolled out on a big scale to test its effectiveness.
