2017

In the pages that follow, you’ll read about the City of New York’s efforts to support a more sustainable, accessible, nutritious and equitable food system for communities throughout New York City. We continue to work to reduce the Meal Gap and food insecurity rate in all boroughs, along with prioritizing funding for emergency food that is made available to those who may need it. We’ve committed to serving free school meals to all 1.1 million children who attend NYC Schools, alleviating the financial burden placed on families; and in keeping with promoting health and wellbeing at schools, there are now gardens in over half of all New York City schools. These are just some of the many highlights of this report and the work to improve the food system. Food justice Access Health Consumer literacy Nutrition Public procurement
