Since its inception, the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund has supported novel strategies to expand availability of healthy foods and promote healthy choices through systemic change and partnerships with deep-reaching community-based institutions. The foundation’s support of healthy food programs in New York began in 2008 with a partnership with the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to launch the NYC Green Cart Initiative.

Building on its previous giving to the healthy foods programs, the Illumination Fund launched its Healthy Food & Community Change initiative on February 14, 2013 at a forum at Teachers College, Columbia University. The foundation announced a commitment of $15 million over five years to healthy food initiatives across New York City -– making it one of the largest donors addressing these problems in The Big Apple.
