Roundup: Best of 2009 “Good Food Movement” Developments

Our FSNYC Communications Committee and Leadership ushered in the New Year by reflecting on some of our favorite food system developments of 2009. This is not intended as a comprehensive list. Rather what strikes us as memorable, and in the case of policy initiatives, things we'll want to watch develop in this new year!  We invite you to add to our list and it will be archived here on the site next month with our members' suggestions added!  Happy New Year!
