Eating in East Harlem: A New Resource for Community Residents, Leaders and Policy Makers

 Eating in East Harlem: A New Resource for Community Residents, Leaders and Policy Makers

In May 2016 the CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute posted at eatingineastharlem.org  the complete report Eating in East Harlem An Assessment of Changing Foodscapes in Community District 11, 2000-2015. The report, which we presented at the CUNY Urban Food Policy Forum on March 24th, analyzes changes in five domains -- food retail, food insecurity and food benefits, institutional food, food and nutrition education, and diet-related health conditions -- in East Harlem from before the election of Michael Bloomberg through the first two years of the de Blasio Administration. 

Its goal is to assess the ways in which food environments in East Harlem have improved, stayed the same, or worsened in this 15-year period in order to inform setting food policy goals for the next 5, 10 or 15 years.
