Why did the Center create this directory?

The Center created its food policy directory for all New York City food-related community organizations, academics and policy makers. Prior to the creation of our directory, a centralized food policy and practice directory was lacking in New York City, making it difficult for food policy and practice organizations to connect and form meaningful partnerships and to connect to their communities. The goal of the directory is to engage and connect food policy-related organizations with one another and with their community.
