JBF Food Conference

Our 2011 JBF Food Conference, Sustainability on the Table: How Money and Media Influence the Way America Eats, is finally upon us! You can participate in the action here on our live site, where you can watch the conference in real time and join the discussion in the comments section of our blog. Our exciting group of guest speakers and panelists include: Marion Nestle, professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York University; sustainable seafood expert Paul Greenberg; James Beard Foundation Award–winning chefs José Andrés, Marcus Samuelsson, and Michel Nischan; JBF Award winner Barry Estabrook, author of Tomatoland; and Stephan Habif, vice president of foods R&D at Unilever. These esteemed speakers and panelists will address topics relating to how money, incentives, and industry concentration influence our food system; how our food choices are shaped by the media; and much more. We'll be live-streaming the presentations, as well as keeping you posted on the questions discussed during the breakout sessions—and you can participate in the conversation by commenting directly on our conference website. We'll have a lot to chew on, so please join us!
