The NFB Where The Blind Work Needs Vending Job Descriptions

We need descriptions of jobs that are found within the field of 
vending (vendor with one site, vendor with route, managing a 
cafeteria, etc.) and of how you do them. Your description will be 
added to the NFB's "Where The Blind work," a new and ever growing 
resource of career descriptions and how the blind compete within 
them. This is a great resource to assist youth to plan for future 
employment and for the adult who is looking to change jobs and/or careers.

Your description must follow the below five question format:
When completed please email them to me at
