Survey: food organization landscape in NYC

The Laurie M. Tisch Center for Food, Education & Policy at Teachers College, Columbia University and Just Food are working on a project to better understand and clarify the landscape of food system work in New York City. We hope to learn who is doing food-related work in NYC, what kind of work it is, and where it is happening. We invite people working to create a healthy, just, sustainable food system in NYC to take this brief (5-10 minute) survey. We will share the information collected with the broader community through an interactive online resource. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration! And please feel free to share this survey widely. The deadline to take the survey is 3/31/14.
 
Take the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GPWX7RS 
 
Any questions or requests for more information about this project can be directed to Claire Uno, Assistant Executive Director, Laurie M. Tisch Center for Food, Education & Policy at cu2155@tc.columbia.edu
