PlaNYC, Food, and the Bronx!

The NYC Mayor's office is traveling around New York City to discuss PlaNYC, the plan for updating the city's infrastructure to ensure long-term sustainability.

NY Faith & Justice, along with many other organizations, are trying to get food on to PlaNYC. You have a chance to tell your story to the Mayor's office. The next meeting is scheduled to take place in the Bronx next week. Please come out and share your story of how food access affects you and your community and the health problems this lack of access causes you, your family and/or your community!

Below, get all of the information for the upcoming meeting and see how past meetings have gone.


Community Conversations in North Brooklyn, Staten Island, and Lower Manhattan generated great ideas earlier this month, and additional events in Northern Manhattan and South Brooklyn will be announced as the logistics are finalized.

Click here to see how the event went in North Brooklyn!

PlaNYC Community Conversations are public town-hall style events designed to generate community input on the PlaNYC update and the priorities of New Yorkers. They are open to the public, and we encourage individuals to bring their friends, family, and colleagues.


The Community Conversations include a brief presentation by PlaNYC staff and a local partner organization working to create a greener, greater community. After those brief presentations, participants break into smaller discussion groups about each area of the plan and work together to develop their own goals and recommendations for consideration as PlaNYC is updated.

Please join us if you can, and please let others know about this upcoming opportunity to help shape the next PlaNYC and the future of our city. Tomorrow I will be calling Community Boards and reaching out to organizations specifically to help get out the word and address concerns. Please spread the word and help pack this session!

If we do not hear it from you who will tell us?
