Be heard! Join the NYU Wagner Food Policy Alliance (WFPA), Just Food, and Columbia's Food Policy & Obesity Prevention (FPOP) while they host a team of experts and your fellow farm and food justice advocates and activists at the Talking Transition NYC tent on Sunday, November 17th from 12-2 pm. Come discuss and learn about the current state of our local food system and share your hopes and priorities with the incoming administration. Whether your interest is local and urban agriculture, school food, hunger prevention, farmers markets, fracking, the cost of food, fair food jobs, all of the above, or another aspect of the food system - we want to hear from you! All eaters are welcome.

The panel will be moderated by Jacquie Berger of Just Food and speakers include Jan Poppendieck, NYC Food Policy Center at Hunter College; Joel Berg, NYC Campaign Against Hunger; Diana Robinson, Food Chain Workers Alliance; Kady Ferguson, Brooklyn Food Coalition; and more.
