food insecurity

Adequate nutrition is a human right, but across the five boroughs,​ more than one out of ten New Yorkers are food insecure. To eliminate food insecurity, we must ensure New Yorkers have real opportunities, livable wages, affordable housing, and quality education.

  • Work with food pantries and meal delivery services to provide for district residents in need.

  • Expand and fund community gardens to provide fresh food for our neighbors in need.

  • Fight for a $20 minimum wage for NYC.

  • Protect and expand free meals at public schools.
