New York City has long been a national leader in defining municipal role for ensuring access to safe and healthy food. But why does food safety matter? How has the level of food safety in New York City changed in the last decade? What are the emerging threats to food safety in New York City and the nation? What else could New York City do to better prevent food-borne illnesses? On Tuesday March 26, join the CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute and invited experts to explore these and other key questions.
Aprielle Wills, CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute Fellow, will present findings from the CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute's forthcoming Food Safety Report.
