This year is an important election year for food.This election is an opportunity to reflect on the progress we've made, but also to recognize what is left undone.
Because a Mayor who understands the importance of food is critical to achieving a healthier, fairer, more sustainable, more affordable, and economically stronger food system, several of the city's leading food systems and anti-hunger organizations and institutions -- Brooklyn Food Coalition, City Harvest, Food Bank For New York City, Food Chain Workers Alliance, the Food Studies program at The New School for Public Engagement, Food Systems Network NYC, Hunger Action Network NYS, Just Food, New York City Coalition Against Hunger, New York City Food Policy Center at Hunter College, and NRDC Action Fund -- are convening a Mayoral candidate forum on the future of food in New York City.
The forum will be moderated by Marion Nestle, award-winning author and Paulette Goddard Professor in the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York University.
The forum will offer our city's and our region's food communities that's you! -- the opportunity to come together and engage mayoral candidates, learn their positions on food issues, and inspire them with a vision for a better food system.
The co-hosts of this forum do not do not endorse, support or oppose any political candidates and/or parties through participation in the forum.
