Food Choices for Healthy People and a Healthy Planet

All posts tagged Author Event


This Wednesday evening, October 2, an interesting event is taking place in Mountain View. The Silicon Valley Innovation Institute is hosting an evening called Perspectives on Innovations in Food (Consequences or Breakthrough?). As you can tell by the title, controversy will not be avoided. SVII has for some years brought together thought leaders on various topics, with the goal of generating creative solutions.

Panelists include Dr. Ed Bauman, a pioneer in the field of holistic nutrition for over 35 years; executive chef Alan Finkelstein; Kathryn Sucher, a recognized authority on how diet, health, and disease are affected by culture/ethnicity and religion; raw food chef Jillian Love; and myself as moderator.

I hope you can attend! This will be an interactive forum and your input is expressly solicited and welcomed.  As the even description says, “Although we seed the discussion with subject matter experts, the audience is also comprised of subject matter experts whose expertise lie in a larger range of topics. And it is within this cross fertilization of intelligent communication that innovation can often occur.”

I was recently a guest speaker at this event in February, Strengthening the roots: Food and Justice Convergence, in Santa Cruz, CA. It was an event organized by the Real Food Challenge. Between this event and one put on in Montana, these summits:

*Brought together over 300 students, community members, and other real food activists to learn, connect, and take action for real food.

*Connected 50 SCHOOLS to the Real Food Challenge network and campaign.

* Featured 35 WORKSHOPS AND PANELS ranging from regional food sovereignty to popular education to campus cooperatives.

* Celebrated the real food community with 2 CONCERTS–both planned and impromptu.

I was honored to be  a part of this movement and will continue to support it!
