The New York Times Cities for Tomorrow Conference: Patching the Safety Net

With threats of major government funding cuts looming, Food Bank For New York City President and CEO Margarette Purvis engaged in a timely conversation with The New York Times Editorial Director of Live Journalism and “Corner Office” columnist Adam Bryant and Christine Quinn, President and CEO of homeless services organization Win, at The New York Times Cities for Tomorrow conference. Their panel, “Patching the Safety Net,  explored how nonprofits are implementing creative, innovative, and collaborative solutions to fill the void – and how individuals and corporations are stepping up their support as well.

The New York Times Cities for Tomorrow conference brings together the world’s foremost industry experts, policymakers, developers, creative visionaries, and entrepreneurs convened to identify and assess the formulas that lead to flourishing cities — and explore new challenges that are rapidly emerging. We are grateful to The New York Times for the invitation to engage this audience of urban thought leaders and decision-makers at such a critical moment.
