New York City currently has a long-term plan for sustainability that includes water, energy, air, transportation, land use, and climate change. Not bad! BUT, there is NO PLAN FOR FOOD.

Food was the first thing God provided for humanity in the Genesis story of Creation. It is a basic human need and a basic human right. So, in this case "Not bad," ain't good enough.

For the past year, NY Faith & Justice has served on Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer's subcommittee to draft this Food Charter and Pledge. Now, your signature on the NYC Sustainable Food Pledge will communicate to the Mayor and City Council that New Yorkers want a just and sustainable food system that benefits all.

Faith Leaders for Environmental Justice is a diverse collaborative network of faith leaders committed to making deep impact on issues of environmental justice in New York City through coordinated collective action.
