This year is an important election year for food. The 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 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.
This event offers 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.
