More thoughtful reflection is on the way, but for the moment I want to announce that Real Food New York’s First Statewide Meeting was an outstanding success! A total of 21 students attended, representing 8 schools: Sarah Lawrence College, The New School (Eugene Lang and Parsons), New York University (Gallatin and the School of Social Work), Barnard College, Columbia University, Manhattan College, Rutgers, and Vassar. We were joined by guests Thomas Forster (Community Food Security Coalition), Kerry Trueman and Matt Rosenberg (Eating Liberally), and Bob Lewis (NY Department of Agriculture). Our upstate contingent sent their regrets, at not being able to attend, but we are planning more convenient meetings for them, to collaborate in the near future!
