Finding Justice, Health, Security and Sustainability in Good Food

Nick Saul, CEO, Community Food Centres Canada; Author, The Stop
Raj Patel, Activist; Author, Stuffed and Starved 
Nikki Henderson, Executive Director, People's Grocery
Jason Mark, Editor, Earth Island Journal; Co-manager, Alemany Farm — Moderator 

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.
