The NYC Food Forum is partnering with community-based and grassroots organizations to host Community Listening Sessions on Food & Equity in each borough - Brooklyn (March 7), the Bronx (July 11), Queens, Manhattan and Staten Island (TBA). The listening sessions are structured to lift up the wisdom and voices of borough residents on racial and economic equity issues as they relate to the food system and place those most impacted by these inequities at the center of the conversation that identifies community food priorities and solutions. In addition to participants being able to connect, share and identify issues and opportunities with each other, the listening sessions will inform the future vision, priorities and structure of the NYC Food Forum as it works to advance an equitable food system in NYC.
If you have recommendations for community-based organizations in any of the five boroughs that may be able to support the planning of an upcoming listening session or help with outreach to community residents, organizers and leaders, contact email@example.com.
The NYC Food Forum Coordinating Committee looks forward to continuing to hold space for conversations on the principles, policy and practice needed to truly advance racial and economic equity for all. Sign-up to receive updates about next steps and upcoming events.
