The New York City Food Policy Center at Hunter College released its inaugural class of New York City’s 40 under 40 who are working to transform the food system. Honorees include policymakers, educators, community advocates, farmers and innovators who are making significant strides to create healthier, more sustainable food environments, and who use food to promote community and economic development.
Adam Liebowitz, the Food and Environment Program Officer at North Star Fund and coordinator of CFF was included on the list.
More from the NYC Food Policy Center:
New York City Food Policy Center at Hunter College’s 40 under 40 inaugural class reflects the Center’s broad perspective around food policy: food policies are not simply regulations imposed by governmental bodies; they believe that food policy impacts millions of New Yorkers every day, at home and at work and in our community. Food policy is not just about what we eat, it impacts our relationships, social equity, the environment, and even employment.
An event honoring those on the list was held on June 16th, and you can view photos from the event online.
