Policy Action Alert! Help Pass “FoodprintNYC”!
A citywide initiative on food an agriculture systems in NYC – Resolution 2049-also known as FoodprintNYC resolution – has been introduced by NYC council member Bill de Blasio. It’s designed to create greater access to local, fresh, healthy food, especially in low-income communities and city run institutions. It is also raising awareness on the impact of the NYC’s food choices on climate change – how we grow, process, package, transport, store and dispose our food.
