This forum is a public discussion on the status of food in the City and State FY20 budgets and looks forward to how they might change in light of the recently released City Council Growing Food Equity in NYC agenda. Invited panelists include representatives from city government, advocacy organizations, and organizations that have successfully influenced the city budget to prioritize good food objectives. Two central questions we hope to address are: How do the NYC and State budget processes work? and What sorts of strategies are most effective in budget advocacy efforts? In addition to helping demystify the city and state budgeting processes, the forum also offers a chance to identify opportunities for actively participating in these processes for the coming FY21. On October 31, join the CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute and invited experts to explore these and other key questions.
