The National Association of Street Vendors of India (NASVI) is headlining the 12th edition of this food festival. The gastronomic event that is being held at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium (JLN) over the weekend is going to be a one-of-a-kind culinary experience. According to several reports, a total of 120 stalls have been set up at the stadium serving a variety of dishes from all over the country. In order to ensure easy navigation for people attending the festival, these stalls have been put up zone-wise – that is East, West, North, and South.
The mega event is organised by the NASVI to help the street food vendors facing financial crunch thus giving them a platform to showcase their culinary skills. It is through this festival that street vendors get exposure and generate good revenue. This fest also brings together people and the diverse culture of India on a single plate.
Earlier, the NASVI had organised the Street Food Festival along with the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) in 2019 in association with Eat Right Mela.
