Greenway to get healthy food vendors

enter site The Rose F. Kennedy Greenway Conservancy has launched a one-year pilot program that would introduce healthy, “green” food vendors along the Greenway by the summer of 2010.

source Jesse Brackenbury, director of business operations for the Greenway, said the pilot food program was suggested after hearing feedback and collecting observations about the Greenway from its patrons. The Conservancy then issued a request for proposal documents from area food vendors by April 5.

Those that are selected will be responsible for obtaining carts and the appropriate permits, but Brackenbury said, “[The Greenway] is there to make sure they’re not running into brick walls. “He said the Greenway has three guiding principles for the vending program: To ensure that the program is a public amenity, to remember that this is a pilot program and to start slow, and to get the basics right.

source site Freshman art major Mackenzie Doyle said she thought the new food carts would be a welcome addition to the parks, and said that she’d be much more likely to visit the parks on a sunny day if there was food available.

So yeah if I could snag a munch, have a seat and grab some fresh air, what could be better?” Not all students were so enthusiastic. Ana Smith, a senior majoring in international affairs, said she was still unlikely to visit the Greenway. “It would barely influence my opinion,” Smith said. “I think I probably wouldn’t go either way.”
