Food Policy

This Saturday Watch the TEDxManhattan Conference, “Changing the Way We Eat,” Online

The theme for this year’s TEDx Manhattan conference, “Changing the Way We Eat,” couldn’t be dearer to our hearts: to explore the food system as we shift to a more sustainable way of eating and farming. Sadly for us (and most of you) tickets are way sold out. The good news is we can all tune in to the conference online here where it will be livestreaming this Saturday, February 16th, from 10:30am – 6:00pm.

If you have any interest in becoming a cheesemonger, butcher or specialty foods buyer, running an urban farm, shooting documentaries about farm workers, writing the history of the taco, working the line in a killer farm-to-table restaurant, working to change agricultural policies, opening your own craft beer bar and grilled cheese shop or helping kids discover the joy of a watermelon radish, then have we got the job fair for you.
