Working in conjunction with Centro Civico and the City of Amsterdam’s Department of Community and Economic Development, our team is tasked with providing a fresh perspective on what is attainable to alleviate food insecurity in the east end of Amsterdam, NY. In light of the recent NYS Downtown Revitalization Initiative awarded to the city, we will conduct a holistic analysis of the conditions of the food desert and create a feasibility study to evaluate how those conditions may improve, especially in conjunction with a potential community kitchen.
