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 security. This site, however, focuses on programs that are run, administered by, or affiliated with City government agencies.
The City’s goal is to create a more equitable, accessible, sustainable, and healthy food system. Achieving those goals begins with affordability and access. The City offers a variety of programs to help New Yorkers offset the cost of food to alleviate food insecurity. We’ve created partnerships with local non-profits to cultivate community gardens and urban farms to build accessible pipelines to healthy, nutritious produce. New York City is a global leader in innovative, forward-thinking food policy, and our programs will power a healthy, eco-friendly food system for all.
