FoodWorks: A Vision to Improve NYC’s Food System

In November 2010, New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn released FoodWorks, a comprehensive report outlining policy recommendations for New York City’s food systems. Urban Design Lab (UDL) Assistant Director Michael Conard, who sits on the City Council’s Food Policy Advisory Board, and UDL Project Manager Kubi Ackerman were significantly involved in shaping the report, which reflects many of the Lab’s initiatives around food systems and urbanization. Included is the UDL’s mapping of the New York City regional foodshed, and the Lab is encouraged by the public interest generated with the release of this report and will continue to develop research and policy recommendations in this expanding field.
