Rep. Torres, Fordham University co-host urban agriculture and food security roundtable

U.S. Rep. Ritchie Torres partnered with Fordham University on Friday, Feb. 2, to bring officials together on an issue that sounds far removed from the Bronx: agriculture. 

“People think about [the U.S. Department of Agriculture] as a rural agency,” Torres said at the event — but it trickles down to food supply in the Bronx, which in turn impacts public health outcomes.
