URBAN FOOD POLICY FORUM | Growing Good Food Jobs in New York City

What opportunities are there for expanding good food jobs – or food sector jobs that pay a decent wage; offer benefits, safe working conditions and pathways for career advancement; and make healthy affordable food more available in low-income communities – in New York City? What is currently missing to scale up existing innovations? Which policies, initiatives, and investments will best address current entrepreneurs and provide the conditions for good food jobs to flourish? On December 18th, join the CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute and a group of guest speakers to explore these and other key questions in this Urban Food Policy Forum.
