The Mayoral Candidate Forum on the Future of Food in NYC is aimed at getting mayoral candidates to explain how they would ensure that the City has a healthier, fairer, more sustainable, more affordable, and economically stronger food system. Immediately before the forum, a youth and community Town Hall event is taking place and participants will attend the forum.
