Liz Carollo

A new NYU Wagner graduate, Liz Carollo (MPA 2017), is among 40 leading individuals under 40 years old who are working—with dedication, perseverance, and impact—to transform food policy and the food system for millions of New Yorkers, according to the New York City Food Policy Center at Hunter College.

The Center has just recognized Ms. Carollo, 36, who works for GrowNYC's path-breaking Greenmarket program in its publicity and programming department, as a 2017 honoree and "rising star." The Clearwater, Florida, native has worked for environmental nonprofit organizations around the country for more than a decade, with knowledge of growing practices, food system revitalization, food history, and cooking.

"I'm biased," she says, "but any New York City Greenmarket is far and wide the best place to find people who love growing, shopping for, preparing, and eating delicious food."

An event to honor all of the 40-under-40 honorees is scheduled to take place at the Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute at Hunter on June 8.

Congratulations, Ms. Carollo, on your success!

And thanks for doing Wagner proud.
