Farm to School Coalition- New York Grown Food for New York Kids

This fall, the Tisch Food Center joined a new coalition, New York Food for New York Kids, committed to increasing healthy, locally grown food and related nutrition education in public schools across the State.

The coalition had its first win with Governor Cuomo’s FY19 executive budget proposal, “No Student Goes Hungry,” which would double the size of the state’s Farm to School grants program while offering the largest state incentive in the country to help schools purchase healthy food grown on local farms.

Claire Uno responded:

“The Tisch Food Center is thrilled to see Governor Cuomo's "No Student Goes Hungry” proposal. Increased investment in nutritious, locally sourced school meals, alongside great nutrition education, is a recipe for children who are nourished and ready to learn. Add to that an end to lunch shaming, and increased support for Breakfast After the Bell, and this announcement is a win for New York students, families, and farmers.”
