2018 Food Tank Summit in New York

This week I was in New York for the 2018 Food Tank Summit at the NYU Tishman Auditorium Vanderbilt Hall. Three big take aways from the impressive line up of speakers for me were, one, we know there are numerous issues surrounding our food system and the food movement is growing and addressing all sides. Every effort is helping to connect the dots and all these dots adds up to make a difference. Two, Marion Nestle mentioned “the root cause of our food issues is over production, we need a new food system” – agreed! She also went on to say, “Vote with your fork,  Vote with your VOTE” whichever side you are on; VOTE. Three, when working on an a food issue address it with solutions,  results and not just relating to financial results but include the community and environmental impact as well.
