As our city launches on a new era of government, with the first new mayoral transition in 12 years, many food advocates and organizations have been wondering, with some degree of hope and optimism, what the change in administration means for New York City, including which, if any, food policy priorities and initiatives Mayor de Blasio’s administration will continue from the Bloomberg era and what new priorities he will champion. With this backdrop of anticipation, last month’s Food Almanac 2014, the annual food policy prognostication event hosted by Food Systems Network NYC was unlike any of the previous three Almanacs. Over 100 food-loving advocates gathered at the at the Centre for Social Innovation (CSI) to enjoy local food, wine and beer, and hear a panel of six food policy experts share their hopes and predictions for the future of New York City’s food system under Mayor de Blasio.

Try this dish, served at Food Almanac 2014, by the Cleaver Co. It's still the perfect weather for this perfect, hearty one-dish supper!
Pozole is a classic Mexican soup made with white hominy, and traditionally, pork. In this vegetarian version, we omitted the
meat and added beans and root vegetables, in a flavor packed tomatillo broth. It’s a perfect dish for winter.
Serve with Salsa Verde, Salsa Roja, and Pickled Jalepenos!
