New York Food 2025 is a collaborative effort by the Hunter College NYC Food Policy Center, the Laurie M. Tisch Center for Food, Education & Policy, and the CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute to examine the effects of the pandemic on New York City’s food policies and programs. In October 2022, the group released a series of research briefs and recommendations that builds on the group’s earlier reports, New York Food 20/20: Vision, Research, and Recommendations During COVID-19 and Beyond and the Strategies for a Healthier, More Just, and Sustainable Food System policy briefs.
The reports present original research and propose specific policy measures the NYC Mayor and City Council can consider to create a stronger, healthier, more just, and sustainable food system in New York City.
