Description

The Change Food Fest "Growing the Good Food Movement" takes place in New York City on November 12 and 13, 2016.

20 years ago the lines between "Big Food" and food advocates were clear.  But today, with the changing landscape of food and consumer shift toward more sustainability and transparency, companies are changing.  Food advocates can be found at various large companies.  Smaller advocacy groups are more open to working with these larger companies.  What is happening - and what does it mean for our food supply?  

The Change Food Fest will explore topics surrounding this change - from how business is changing to companies who are doing it right - to people who are creating massive change without the billions of dollars of investment money going into startups.  Come explore the new food movement with us.

And during the full day, we will celebrate food.  Lots and lots of food!

The tentative schedule includes:

Saturday, November 12th (9:00am - 7:00pm)

  • Change Talks "Growing the Good Food Movement" – The 3 sessions include "Businesses Doing it Right", "The Changing Business of Food" and "Real Change, Right Now"

  • Food for breakfast and lunch - lots and lots of food!

  • Panel discussions

  • Exhibition hall, including food tastings, demonstrations, information

  • Viewing Lounge and opportunities to network and find like-minded food leaders

  • Gift bag

  • Themed dinners around NYC (after event - all guests responsible for their own dinner) 

Stayed tuned for adventures and experiences on Sunday, November 13th.  Separate registration needed for these.  We are arranging a bread baking class with the founder of Le Pain Quotidien, a cheese exploration with the founder of Beechers cheese, a tour of the amazing work being done by Harlem Grown - and much more!!  Adventures open to ticket holders.  Separate fee may or may not apply.

(Please note: Program is still being finalized and is subject to change. Tickets are non-refundable.)

Do you have friends who want to join us at the Change Food Fest but can’t make it to New York City for the event? No problem. We’ll be webcasting the fest on Saturday, November 12th, so they can host their own Viewing Party or attend one nearby. Get details here.
