Each day will conclude with some of the most renowned chefs in the country showcasing and discussing how these important issues affect their work today and in the future.
The program or the 3-day event is as follows:
- October 20: The State of the Food System
- October 21: On the Front Lines of Food
- October 22: The Great Transition
On October 21st, speakers will discuss how our modern food and agriculture systems help feed a growing planet, while also serving to perpetuate a multitude of injustices. The pandemic has heightened awareness of unsafe jobs and practices that disproportionately affect the poor and people of color, just as the lack of nutritional foods takes a toll on their health. Now restaurants are in crisis, putting many out of work and gutting communities. This day we look at the challenges communities and individuals face, how restaurants are recreating their role in the community, and how regenerative agriculture can help to create justice in the food system and provide nutritious food at scale. Among others, panelists include Alice Waters, Sean Sherman and Jim Embry from Slow Food USA EIJ network.
