Thank you Keith for joining us and sharing your experiences growing up at a farm, your food advocacy journey, and letting us learn more about the important work at City Harvest.
Keith Carr is the Manager, Policy and Government Relations at City Harvest. He works to advance the organization’s hunger, food insecurity policy priorities and keeps abreast of timely city, state and federal policies and proposed legislation and their implications on City Harvest’s clients and emergency feeding program partners and develops advocacy strategy around key issues.
Keith is passionate about everyone having access to good, healthy, nutritious and affordable food. He has lived in Brooklyn for 31 years but is originally from Hartford, CT and spent his childhood summers on his grandparents’ farm in Northeastern CT where they grew the best silver queen corn, sweet potatoes, collards and callaloo you have ever tasted.
