Come along for a food (policy) tour of HRN’s home city and state of New York. We speak to a local Queens business owner about how to-go cocktails saved his business during the pandemic and we’re introduced to an organization that’s helping street vendors bounce back from their financial losses. We hear from residents from the Big Apple who are hoping that curbside composting comes to their neighborhood. Plus, we talk with a professor at Cornell University, whose research on soil health and climate smart farming educated lawmakers to pass the New York State’s Soil Health and Climate Act.
