The Boston Snack Down: Past, Present, and Future of Natural Foods in Beantown

April 9, 2014 @ 5:30 am - 7:30 pm


Join us for this unique, informative and tasty event, as we celebrate the launch of Joe Dobrow’s new history of the natural foods movement, Natural Prophets, by staging a food entrepreneurship panel discussion and snack food sampler, with featured guests Trish Karter, founder of Dancing Deer Bakery, and Gordon Boggis, CEO of Unreal Candy. We’ll have FREE samples from some of the area’s other great natural foods companies, too. The natural foods revolution of the past three decades has changed what we eat, where we shop, how we talk and think about food… and it has also created a second revolution in entrepreneurship, focused on the “triple bottom line.” Boston has long been on the front lines of those battles, with a lively community built around sustainability and food entrepreneurship, and a deep tradition of natural and organic food entrepreneurs like Erewhon and Bread & Circus.
