NYC Mayoral Candidate Forum on the Future of Food in NYC

NYC Mayoral Candidate Forum on the Future of Food in NYC

Brighter Green is co-sponsoring the Mayoral Candidate Forum on the Future of Food in New York City.

This year, NYC residents will vote in a new mayor and this forum allows NYC’s food communities to understand mayoral candidates’ position on food issues.

According to the Food Systems Network NYC website:

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.

Marion Nestle, award-winning author and Paulette Goddard Professor in the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York University will be moderating the forum.
