To mark the release of its new report, Food Policy in New York City Since 2008: Lessons for the Next Decade, the Institute hosts the second of a two-part series looking at the progress the city has made on food policy and what else needs to be done to reduce diet-related disease, food insecurity and other food-related problems. By exploring what New York City has accomplished in food in the last decade, we hope to identify strategies for advancing food equity in New York City in the next 5 to 10 years.
