In the age of Uber and Taskrabbit, it’s only natural that the brains of Silicon Valley would want to tackle the larger issues of how and what we eat. After its wildly successful Hack//Meat events in California and New York, Food+Tech Connect is shifting its focus on innovation to the realm of the restaurant with Hack//Dining NYC.

The weekend hackathon, organized by Food+Tech Connect in collaboration with Applegate, Google, Chipotle, and Studio Industries, will take place June 27–29 at General Assembly in New York City. Over the course of three days, chefs, engineers, executives, designers and data scientists will develop and test open-source software and hardware to tackle industry-wide challenges in areas of Sustainable Sourcing, Wellness, Food Safety, and Operations. JBF’s executive vice president Mitchell Davis will return as an advisor to the hackathon teams, which will compete for a variety of prizes awarded at the close of the event.

The deadline for registration is June 13, 2014. Further information on ticket prices and registration available here. For a discount, use code FTCfriends at checkout.
