Just Food's 2017 Annual Conference
Think what you eat isn't political? Right now, everything is. To learn more and become involved, you might want to attend Just Food's 2017 annual conference, "A Call To Collaboration."
Just Food is a NYC-based non-profit organization that works with community leaders to make healthy, local food available to all. Since 1995, it has pioneered and led the growth of community-supported agriculture (CSAs), community-run farmers markets, and farm-to-food pantry programs.
Its 2017 annual conference will take place on Sunday and Monday March 12 and 13 at Teachers College, Columbia University in Manhattan. More than 800 community organizers, CSA members, local food advocates and others are expected to attend the two-day event, which is open to the public.
This year's program theme is "A Call To Collaboration." The keynote speakers will be Devita Davison, interim Executive Director at FoodLab Detroit on Sunday, and on Monday it will be Dr. Ricardo Salvador, Food and Environmental Program Director at the Union of Concerned Scientists.
The conference is being held in partnership with the Tisch Food Center and Farm School NYC. Other sponsors include the Durst Organization, Good Food Jobs, Whole Foods, Organic Valley, Vermont Creamery, and others.
Tickets start at $55 (student tickets at $40) for the pre-conference reception on Friday evening. More information about the conference, tickets and registration can be found here.
