Nourishing Strong Communities: Thoughts on Food Policy from Karen Karp

Monday, March 15, 2010

On April 20th, Philanthropy New York held a members briefing—sponsored by the Jessie Smith Noyes Foundation, the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, and The Elmezzi Fund—which focused on ways that the public, private, and government sectors are working together to improve the food system. This program was the second in a series of briefings focusing on food policies and practices in New York City and the role nonprofits and funders can play in improving and supporting them. We are pleased to have one of the presenters, Karen Karp, President of Karp Resources, share her thoughts with us.
