To demonstrate its commitments to equity, health, and environmental sustainability, the City of New York has developed an ambitious yet achievable citywide strategy to adopting and integrating the principles of GFP.

As a collaborative citywide initiative managed by the Mayor’s Office of Food Policy, NYC has developed its own approach to integrate the GFP principles, ensuring that money spent on food serves both the people and the planet.
