CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute Forum: Turning ideas into action after the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health


Thursday November 17 |  11 AM – 12:30 PM  |  RSVP

How can we translate into action some of the core ideas and solutions put forward at the 2022 White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health?

Guest speakers will explore this question through the lens of three central food policy goals: making free school meals available to all, ending college food insecurity, and reducing corporate influences on community food environments (including reducing predatory marketing of unhealthy food and beverages to young people).

Thursday November 10  |  6:00 PM – 7:00 PM  |  RSVP

The Office of Counseling and Wellness Services is holding an LGBTQIA+ Student Support Group every Thursday at 6 PM (except November 24th). 

This group is for students interested in discussing sexuality, gender identity and a sense of self, and who are looking for solidarity and camaraderie within the LGBTQIA+ community.
