Center News: September 2014

It’s that time again! Back to school and we’re already in full swing at the NYC Food Policy Center at Hunter College. We’re excited about new partnerships and projects and look forward to a productive fall semester working together with our local and city-wide partners.


Have you visited out our website recently? We’ve recently revamped it, particularly our “projects” pages. Visit to learn more about our work in East Harlem and our “Campaign for Healthy Food.” There you’ll find project summaries from the East Harlem Research Action Workshops students, many of whom are currently translating their research into real-world projects. You’ll also find a summary we conducted of East Harlem needs assessments from 2003-2013. Check our website for event updates, food policy briefs, community resources, and read more information about our other projects, including evaluation studies, international food security and urbanization, and our Good Food Jobs project. Stay tuned for translated pages (se habla espanol!) as well as more updates and additions as our website grows.

We are also embarking on several exciting new student projects focused on the East Harlem food environment, building upon the work done by students and staff in the spring 2014 East Harlem Research Action Workshop. We will update soon with progress on these projects. As always, we welcome contact with any groups interested in collaborating, exchanging ideas and sharing thoughts and possible opportunities in East Harlem. For more information, please contact Diana Johnson, Director of Community Projects at
