In 2022, to engage New Yorkers in shaping the 2023 Farm Bill, Food for the Spirit joined Equity Advocates and Black Farmers United NYS to co-lead a series of of conversations, listening sessions and surveys. We prioritized outreach to and participation of Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) farmers, producers, & practitioners in NY State and over 300 New Yorkers got involved.

Those New Yorkers shared how the 2023 Farm Bill can better support them in terms of land access, urban agriculture, climate change, community food project funding, nutrition, local and regional food systems, and their comments informed our statewide policy platform. The resulting policy platform represents a collective voice from NYS community food leaders, farmers, gardeners, land stewards, producers, & advocates.
