Huffington Post Op-ed by Laurie Tisch & Rick Luftglass: Leading the Way for Food Equity

Leading the Way for Food Equity

Since the launch of the Healthy Food & Community Change initiative, the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund has been committed to a holistic strategy to increasing healthy food access in New York City. In an op-ed piece for the Huffington Post, Laurie Tisch and Rick Luftglass emphasize the importance of collaboration and leadership development within the food access field to catalyze change. The Foundation’s dedication to these principles is bearing fruit, as several of our grantees and partners were included in the New York City Food Policy Center at Hunter College’s inaugural list of 40 Under 40: The Rising Stars in New York City Food Policy.

The op-ed was also featured in Philanthropy New York’s PhilanthroPost here.
