August 2013, Babette Audant from CEWD
The New York City Food Policy Center at Hunter College released "Jobs for a Healthier Diet and a Stronger Economy" which cites Kingsborough Community College as an institution that supports the creation of valuable and sustaining food jobs. Our own Babette Audant, Executive Director of CEWD and Assistant Profressor of Culinary Arts at KCC was part of this research team. The report looks to the food sector to answer questions about creating fair and safe jobs, promoting economic development, and making food healthier and accessible to all New Yorkers.

April 2013, Mara Gittleman from the KCC Urban Farm
In April, the New York City Community Garden Coalition hosted "NYCCGC Forum 2013: Stand For Our Land!" a grassroots teach-in and forum with NYC Mayoral candidates including City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, Comptroller John Liu, former Bronx Borough President Aldolfo Carrion and Green Party candidate Tony Gronowicz, with a keynote from NYCCGC's former president, community activist and active NYC gardener, Karen Washington, about the future of community green spaces in New York. Our own Mara Gittleman, Farm Coordinator at the KCC Urban Farm and Vice President of NYCCGC, helped host this event which featured Ms. Washington's keynote, the Mayoral Panel and a number of workshops discussing the past, present and future of New York's green spaces.
