3:30-4:30pm: Lightning Round: Great Ideas to Foodbetter

Foodbetter Harvard invites you to ask questions about the food system and how to improve it: how to grow better, eat better, shop better, conserve better . . . how to Foodbetter. Join this Lightening Round of 5-7 minute Foodbetter Ideas shared by a cross-section of the community.

 

 

4:30-5:45pm: Keynote Panel: Foodies Who Foodbetter

Some of Boston's best chefs and restauranteurs are using their platform to change the food system as we know it. They are activists and entrepreneurs who aren't just content with winning rave reviews. (They also all happen to be women!) Join this discussion about how these industry leaders are reinventing the food system and their communities from their Boston-area restaurants.

 

 

Wearing her Harvard alumna hat, Joanne Chang, Chef Owner of Flour Bakery and Meyers & Chang, will moderate the conversation with:

  • Katrina Jazayeri, Co-Owner, Juliet– talking about social justice and its application and opportunity in the restaurant industry
  • Jody Adams, Chef Owner, Saloniki, Porto & Trade – talking about moving into the fast-casual space to make it healthier, as well as about advocacy on health issues
  • Irene Li, Chef Owner, Mei Mei Street Kitchen – talking about Mei Mei’s open-book and profit sharing approach
  • Tiffani Faison, Chef Owner, Sweet Cheeks & Tiger Mama – talking about using her platform for community advocacy, especially around LGBT issues
