The Rising Stars in NYC Food Policy 2017

Our Director of Policy & Planning, Alissa Wassung, made The NYC Food Policy Center at Hunter College’s 40 Under 40: The Rising Stars in NYC Food Policy 2017 list! Congratulations!!

The NYC Food Policy Center at Hunter College has released its annual class of New York City’s 40 under 40 who are working to transform the food system. The honorees include policymakers, educators, community advocates, farmers and innovators who are making significant strides to create healthier, more sustainable food environments, and who use food to promote community and economic development.

The Food Policy Center at Hunter College’s 40 under 40 class reflects the Center’s broad perspective around food policy: food policies are not simply regulations imposed by governmental bodies; we believe that food policy impacts millions of New Yorkers every day, at home and at work and in our community. An event to honor these individuals will take place at the Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute at Hunter College on June 8th, 2017. Congratulations Class of 2017!
