CFF partnered with Philanthropy New York to host a briefing about community-building practices that use food as the primary tool. Rick Luftglass (Executive Director, Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund) moderated a panel comprised of Ben Thomases (Executive Director, Queens Community House), Robin Berger (Interim Executive Director, Just Food), and Nicholas Freudenberg (Director, CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute). This program intentionally drew a distinction between community building and community organizing, while recognizing that those lines are often blurred.
