The NYC Food Standards address various settings in which food is purchased and served through nutrition criteria including programming in:

  • Vending machines
  • Meetings and events
  • Correctional facilities

The Food Standards aim to improve the health of all New Yorkers served by City agencies by lowering the risk of chronic disease related to poor nutrition.

Information and resources are available to implement the Food Standards at a City agency, university, hospital, organization, or other institution.
