A coalition of elected officials, advocates, and nonprofit leaders have created a plan for the next mayor to end hunger by 2018. The main thrust consists of executive actions the mayor could take, while the rest is rounded out by recommendations for federal, state, and local legislators. It would "make food jobs a central component of the city’s job creation strategy" and "grow, process, and manufacture more food right here in NYC." Other goals would be to push for higher wages, streamline food assistance benefits, and to mandate universal school lunches. The plan would create jobs, aid workers, bolster businesses, and protect the environment, its authors say.
