2013 Candidate Forum Series

When: July 23, 2013 - August 19, 2013

City Council & Borough President

This is a pivotal year: decisions in Washington threaten to dramatically worsen food poverty at the same time that the leadership in our City is changing hands for the first time in more than a decade. In order to ensure both candidates and voters are informed about the array of challenges our most vulnerable neighbors face each day, Food Bank For New York City will be presenting a series of City Council and Borough President candidate forums, in partnership with local member organizations and DNAinfo New York, a leading source of community news across the five boroughs.


Forums will be moderated by DNAinfo New York’s editors and beat reporters, who bring in-depth local knowledge of community issues.
