Blind Businessmen and Businesswomen Building a Better America!
The Randolph-Sheppard Vendors of Florida (RSVF) is an affiliate of Florida Council of the Blind (FCB) and Randolph-Sheppard Vendors of America (RSVA), though not currently an active group. Their goal is to promote the general welfare of blind vendors statewide who are engaged in the operating of vending machine operations, cafeterias, military troop dining contracts, snack bars, gift shops and other retail businesses. They and their national sister organization are committed to improving economic opportunities for blind vendors and managers.
RSVF was formed December 15th, 1973. Some of RSVF's early members were Paul Verner, Don Cameron and Betty (Barlow) Hutson.
RSVF generally holds their meetings in conjunction with those of FCB.
