Safe & Nutritious Food at Street

Clean Street Food - Strategy and approach

The Project will be taken up by Implementation Partner(IP) following a four step process.

  • 1. Resource Persons and Training of Trainers
  • 2. Sensitization and mobilization
  • 3. Sensitization and mobilization
  • 4. FSSAI registration and post training support

Resource Persons and Training of Trainers

FSSAI has identified a pool of Resource Persons to facilitate scaling up of the project who will help train the trainers across the states.

'Training of Trainers' can be facilitated at the initiation of the project. Trainers of Implementation Partner can be trained and certified by FSSAI. Such certified trainers can further undertake training of vendors.

Each qualified trainer will be provided "Trainer Certificate" from FSSAI along with a "Guidance Document to Ensure Food Safety and Hygiene in Street Food Vending".

Sensitization and mobilization

Project can be taken up by Implementation Partner on "Area Adoption" approach, wherein the Implementation Partner will identify the area it wants to adopt for implementing the project.

Further, IP will identify peer leaders among the vendors and mobilise the vendors in these areas and make them aware about the program. (FSSAI can suggest mobilization agency based on its prior engagement with the project.)

Implementation Partner can start the project by downloading the training content available on the portal or can seek support from FSSAI in Training of Trainers.

Training of vendors, feedback and assessment

Implementation partner through its trainers will impart training to the vendors belonging to the adopted area in batches not exceeding 40 vendors at a time. Duration of the course is 4 hours which can be covered in a single day. Assessment of vendors will be done by trainers after completion of the training.

Each qualified vendor shall be provided with a "Food Safety and Hygiene Kit" consisting of:

  • Food Safety Display Board (FSDB)* - 1
  • Awareness board - 1
  • Handbag - 1
  • Washable aprons - 2
  • Washable cap* - 1
  • Disposable plastic gloves* - 50
  • Antibacterial soap (75gm)* - 3
  • Pack of duster cloths - 1

FSDB and awareness boards are to be put up on stalls by the vendors. Open design file of Food Safety Display Board and Awareness material can be downloaded from SNF portal. IP will be responsible for getting it printed and distributed.

FSSAI registration and post training support

Implementation partner, with help of peer leaders shall undertake periodic review of the area, and arrange refresher training if needed. IP can further coordinate with local authorities to felicitate vendors who have adopted the best practices under Clean Street Food.

Implementation partner shall make vendors aware of the requirement and procedure of the FSSAI registration. IP may facilitate registration of vendors by taking them to Common Service Centres. Cost of one time registration may be factored in the overall expenditure of the project.

Financing and convergence models

Implementation Partner shall have the sole responsibility of managing finances for project implementation.

IP may arrange finances on their own or through collaboration with other funding agencies including civil society organisations, corporates etc. IP may also utilize the funds available with various skill, educational, vocational schemes of the government.

Under RPL

Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) is a Skill certification Scheme to enable a large number of Indian youth to take up industry-relevant skill training that will help them in securing a better livelihood.

Under the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) component of the Scheme, Project Implementing Agencies (PIA) shall undertake the project. PIA shall include Sector Skill Councils or any other agencies designated by MSDE/NSDC. PIA shall act as Implementation Partner under "Clean Street Food".

RPL shall follow 5-step process under Project type "RPL Centres" which covers RPL at designated centres for geographically scattered workers who need to be mobilised. STEP 1: Mobilisation STEP 2. Pre-Screening and Counselling STEP 3: Orientation STEP 4: Final Assessment STEP 5: Certification and Payout.

Here Implementation Partner shall ensure that training content, trainers and certification are in accordance with FSSAI requirements.

Training Content: IP shall ensure that vendors are imparted training in accordance with the content available at SNF Portal for Clean Street Food.

Trainers: Trainers of taking up Food Safety and Hygiene training must be certified by FSSAI.

FSSAI Certification: Food Vendors would receive a FSSAI generated certificate that would encourage them to continue upgrading their Food Safety and Hygiene skills. This will help in enhancing their businesses as well. This requires a system integration between SDMS of NSDC and FoSTaC of FSSAI so that data of qualified vendors after STEP 4 of RPL can be utilised to generate FSSAI certificates.

Alternatively, IP may choose to manually submit data of qualified vendors after STEP 4 of RPL on FoSTaC of FSSAI and generate certificates.


Organisations/agencies that are already imparting training to street vendors or are involved in activities related to vendor empowerment, can get associated with project clean street food as Implementation Partner.

Such IP shall ensure that food vendors are imparted Food Safety and Hygiene training in accordance with the content available at SNF Portal. Whereupon the IP can distribute certificate to qualified vendors carrying "Based on FSSAI's Clean Street Food" in a specified format available at SNF Portal.

Submit project/feedback

After successful completion of the project, Implementation partner may submit the details and leanings from the project on SNF Portal in the prescribed format which shall include pictures and video clips establishing the impact on the ground. Based on impact assessment of the projects submitted, FSSAI may consider annual recognition and reward to about 10 best implemented projects. Also, these success stories will be featured on the portal.
