It was clear from the speakers and panels of this year’s JBF Food Conference that for problems related to food and health, this is no one simple solution. In this panel, JBF Award-winning journalist Michael Pollan and executive director of Let’s Move! Sam Kass share their at times opposing views of the future of the American diet, and how responsibility breaks down along individual, federal, and corporate lines. As with many of the Conference's participants, they may disagree on how to enact change, but the need for reform is undeniable.
