LISC New York City Launches Three-year Healthy Food Initiative To Improve Quality Of Life For Low-income NYC Residents

Health is a part of all of that, noted Michael Rubinger, LISC national president and CEO.  "There is no denying the clear connection between poverty and disease," he said. "The fact that low-income neighborhoods tend to be food deserts, where for generations families have had no means to access or afford fresh food, is certainly one of the driving factors.  We are working to change that."



About LISC

LISC combines corporate, government and philanthropic resources to help nonprofit community development corporations revitalize distressed neighborhoods.  Since 1980, LISC has raised $12 billion to build or rehab 289,000 affordable homes and develop 46 million square feet of retail, community and educational space.

Over the last 30 years, LISC New York City has invested more than $2 billion in New York City neighborhoods, in partnership with community development corporations (CDCs) and other local groups.  With LISC NYC support, these organizations have developed close to 33,000 affordable homes and apartments and 2 million square feet of commercial space.  For more information, visit http://www.lisc.org/nyc/.
