NYC Food Forum Releases "A Primer for Our New Mayor"

October 11, 2013

The New York City Food Forum (NYC Food Forum) is a group of food-active organizations that collectively support a better food future for New York City. The NYC Food Forum was born out of the collaborative effort of 12 co-host organizations to sponsor the Mayoral Candidate Forum on the Future of Food in New York City in July 2013. Six mayoral candidates, 76 partner organizations, an in-person audience of more than 750 people, and an online audience of more than 1,300 viewers attended the Mayoral forum, demonstrating the importance of food policy in our city.

Since July, the Food Forum has:

  • authored A Food Primer for Our New Mayor, a document lays out priorities in five areas: hunger, healthy food, school food, food economy, and food governance,
  • partnered with the HungerCliff.org project, a new national online and action resource where individuals and organizations are convening to speak out against cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly known as the food stamp program).
