Just Food? Forum on Justice in the Food System

March 28, 2015 - March 29, 2015

EVERYBODY EATS, BUT DO YOU EAT JUST FOOD?

Just Food? will explore the legal, policy, health, and environmental aspects of modern domestic and international food systems, with a focus on the intersection of social justice and food. Our conference will bring together scholars, activists, practitioners, and other authorities to discuss the growing concerns that our methods of production, marketing, processing, distributing, and consuming food are not equitable, just, healthy, or sustainable for our communities. Our goal is to educate attendees, empower them to make changes, and engage them in the food community.

Featured Speakers:
-Ricardo Salvador, Director of Food and Environment Program, Union of Concerned Scientists
-Frances Moore Lappe, author and Cofounder of the Small Planet Institute
-Sasha Purpura, Executive Director, Food for Free
-Sanjay Rawal, Director, Food Chains
-Molly Anderson, Partridge Chair in Food and Sustainable Agriculture Systems, College of the Atlantic
-Chef Kate Adamick, Founder, Cook For America
-Doug Rauch, Founder, The Daily Table
-Barton Seaver, Director of the Healthy and Sustainable Food Program, Center for Health and the Global Environment, Harvard School of Public Health
