Food to Change the World
Wednesday, October 2, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
Finding Justice, Health, Security and Sustainability in Good Food
When Nick Saul became the executive director of The Stop in 1998, the little urban food bank was like thousands of others – cramped and dreary, a last refuge for the area’s poor. Fifteen years later, The Stop is a thriving, internationally respected community food center with gardens, kitchens, farmers markets and a mission to radically revolutionize the food system. How did a single food bank turn into an international movement? We’ve assembled a group of clarion voices for a think tank discussion on how fighting for a just food system can have a soaring impact on individual communities and the world at large. Join us as Nick Saul, Raj Patel, Nikki Henderson and others unpack the story of The Stop and the forward-thinking models that could combat not only hunger, but environmental degradation, global health and international security.
