Food Policy for Breakfast: Finding Synergy: Strategies for Coordinating Multiple Food Initiatives to Magnify Impact and Reduce Duplication

Part of our Spring 2015 Food Policy for Breakfast Seminar Series.

To what extent and in what ways are the many recent initiatives already collaborating and strengthening each others work? What are existing mechanisms and processes for coordinating this work? What strategies can we identify to find synergies and magnify the impact of this work?

In this session we will bring together representatives of community organizations, local government, philanthropy, and academia to explore the opportunities and challenges associated with the multiple new initiatives related to food and food policy in New York City.
