The Office of the Director of Food Policy works to advance the City’s efforts to increase food security, promote access to and awareness of healthy food, and support economic opportunity and environmental sustainability in the food system. To do this, the office coordinates multiple City agencies and offices that work on food programs or policies, as well as partners with the many advocates and nonprofit organizations working in food. The office also convenes the Food Policy Task Force, comprised of representatives from multiple City agencies and the City Council.
New York City is home to many nonprofits, businesses, community groups, entrepreneurs, and individuals who are actively engaged in work relating to the issues of food access, hunger, nutrition, and community greening. This site, however, focuses on programs that are run, administered by, or affiliated with City government agencies.
