Our Mission

To ensure all New Yorkers have access to healthy, affordable, culturally-appropriate foods through equity-centered, high-impact public policy.

Our Vision

Access to quality food is an essential human right. Lack of access is an income equity issue compounded by systemic racial and gender-based barriers.

We believe the government has a fundamental responsibility and an unmatched capacity to end poverty and its consequence: hunger. To that end, we advocate for high-impact public policy change that ensures all New Yorkers have access to healthy, affordable, plentiful and culturally appropriate foods. 

Our Approach
  • We strive for high-impact policy change and strong implementation that dismantle income inequities and racial and gender-based barriers;

  • We are guided by solid policy and budget analysis;

  • We build creative and strategic coalitions; 

  • We believe in the strength of collective power, experiences, and knowledge; and

  • We are fueled by the full partnership and meaningful engagement of people most directly affected.
