Food matters. Access to affordable, high-quality food is a fundamental human right. While the City's food system delivers a vast array of foods that cater to every possible culture, dietary need and preference, it also faces many challenges. The fragmented nature of the food system means that too many people lack access to affordable, healthy foods. It is the first goal of our Food Forward Report that all New Yorkers have multiple ways to access healthy, affordable, and culturally appropriate food. Whether you are in need of a hot meal right now or consistent access to benefits to purchase food for your family, this site lays out some options for accessing healthy food.
