America's industrialized food system threatens the health of our families, our communities, and the planet.

To fix this, NRDC is working to rebuild strong regional food systems. We're partnering with many of the nation’s largest school districts—including New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago—to make cafeteria meals healthier for students and the environment. We're establishing regional food hubs, including a wholesale farmers’ market in New York City’s South Bronx, so that communities have easier access to fresh food. And we're crafting state and local laws that will make our food system more equitable for all Americans.
