Healthy Food For Upper Manhattan (HFUM), is a workgroup and collaborative space focused specifically on food-related work in Upper Manhattan. This joint effort seeks to address the availability and quality (affordability and desirability) of healthy foods in Upper Manhattan. We aim to bring together expertise and collaborate on targeted local campaigns related to food and health.
Special Topic: Food & Crime: How Community-based, Government and Educational Organizations Are Combating Inner-City Violence with Health and Food Programs
In this second meeting of the Healthy Food for Upper Manhattan Work Group we seek to explore the opportunities for youth to become involved with food programs (e.g. Gardening, Farmer’s Markets, Food Education) to further discourage criminal activities. What are some potential partnerships community groups can explore to support this cause?
