To help minimize the impact gentrification has on food access and safeguard against food insecurity, CFA is beginning to work with CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute and other key partners – including community organizations, academic food policy centers and policymakers – to establish policies and strategies that:

 

  • Ensure good quality food is available, affordable, and accessible to all residents

  • Promote the financial ability of long-term residents to stay in a neighborhood and retain a sense of belonging

  • Protect, preserve and support food-related community institutions
