Event: Brooklyn Food Conference

Event: Brooklyn Food Conference

  • 5 may 2009

The first annual Brooklyn Food Conference took place over the weekend, bringing a diverse audience, estimated at between 2,500 and 3,000 people, together around the idea of creating a just, sustainable and delicious food system for all. The grassroots effort that resulted from a partnership between a group of passionate volunteers and a small number of like-minded organizations was impressive in its breadth and scope. More than 60 workshops touched on a wide array of subjects ranging from food policy and health to backyard gardening and political organizing. A perusal of the conference offerings from the day points to both the integral role that food plays in all aspects of our lives and the complexities of the issues surrounding it.
