The Future of Food Policy in the Post-Bloomberg Era

This is also in the Talking Transitions Tents, and we should go there with our FOOD NOT FRACKING campaign! It is directly following the 10am Resiliency panel with the Urban "Green" Council, so come to one or come to both. I made separate meetups for these. Here's the skinny:

NYU Wagner Food Policy Alliance (WFPA), Just Food, Columbia Food Policy and Obesity Prevention (FPOP)
Be heard! Join NYU Wagner Food Policy Alliance, Just Food, and Columbia's Food Policy and Obesity Prevention (FPOP), a team of policy experts, and your fellow farm and food justice advocates and activists to learn about the current state of the food system and share your hopes and priorities with the incoming administration. Whether your interest is local agriculture, school food, antihunger, farmers markets, urban agriculture, fracking, the cost of food, fair food jobs, all of the above, or another aspect of the food system - we want to hear from you! All eaters are welcome.
