Stanford Food Summit
FOOD SUMMIT 5 - Wednesday, October 29, 2014 from 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
This year's fifth Stanford Food Summit will build on the four prior successful annual events.
The first Food Summit, held in the Fall of 2010, demonstrated the breadth and depth of interest in Food issues across the 7 schools of the University (Medicine, Earth Sciences, Business, Humanities & Sciences, Law, Education, and Engineering). The target audience was primarily academics.
The second and third Summits opened up the target audience to include community-based food groups/organizations, and included presentations of pilot collaborative research projects in the areas of Hospital Food, Food Bank Food, Farm to School Food, and Food Policy. The fourth Summit focused on careers in food systems and engaged a number of Stanford students.
The 2014 Food Summit 5 will provide a forum for focusing on Connects in Food. It will feature two separate events, a Day Program (speakers, a showcase of community organizations and scholarly student food projects, a fabulous lunch, and interactive afternoon discussions between panelists and attendees); and an Evening Film Screening.
Preliminary information can be found at the Food Summit website with more details being added on a regular basis. Registration will open by Monday, October 6, 2014. An email will be sent out to everyone already on the Food Summit Listserve at that time.
As always, space is limited and another sold out event is anticipated, so plan to register early to attend.
