Mayoral Forum on Food Policy
 to be Livestreamed

Because a Mayor who understands the importance of food is critical to achieving a healthier, fairer, more sustainable, and economically stronger food system, several of the city’s leading food systems organizations and institutions, including Slow Food NYC, are sponsoring a Mayoral candidate forum on the future of food in New York City.

Now, due to overwhelming demand to attend, the event will be livestreamed. View the livestream at:

Immediately before the forum, a youth and community Town Hall event is taking place and participants will attend the forum.
