When Big Change Tastes Good: Accelerating the Transition to a Just and Compassionate Food System

Leah Garcés July 7, 2022

This interactive conversation among pioneering women will not just illuminate what is wrong with our food system, but show us how to build a better one. These innovative entrepreneurs will engage and inspire audience members to reimagine how to feed the world. They will pull from their deep experience in creating businesses that are transitioning food production to new structures and markets founded on a deep devotion to justice for all. Together, we’ll uncover answers to questions about how to use new technologies, storytelling, partnerships with unlikely allies, and policy advocacy as tools to transform the food economy.
