Helping street food vendors sell meals online
The lockdown has forced people off the streets and encouraged hungry residents to rely on delivery orders for sustenance. This has greatly affected street food vendors, many of whom are unable to ply their trade because they are not digital-savvy and are unable to establish a presence online. Social initiative Locall, with the help of food delivery platform Rine, has come to the rescue, acting as a bridge between online consumers and street food uncles and aunties in Pratupee, Yaowarat and Nanglinchee. Vendors in Nang Leung Market benefit from the help of Baan Nang Leung, a food delivery service that purchases food sold in the market and delivers them to buyers via Lineman.
