Food for Thought on Food Day 2014
Today CCC is celebrating Food Day, an annual event reminding people in New York and across the country to think about how better food policies can improve health and fight hunger.

We hope these ideas have given you something to “chew” on this Food Day. Help us to raise awareness about these priorities by sharing this blog on Facebook and Twitter. And continue to check back here for future CCC reports, testimonies, and opportunities to take action in the fight against hunger and food insecurity for all of New York City’s children.
