— Columbia University, conference, Education, events, Food desert, MySmarterCommerce, nutrition, Policy, Teachers College
Just a quick note to say that I was so happy to attend the inaugural Food, Education, and Policy conference at Teachers’ College at Columbia University yesterday.
There are so many challenges ahead of us, in terms of better nutrition, food justice, and ‘food deserts’ but it was invigorating to have policy-makers, educators, philanthropists, and activists come together with different communities to discuss practical strategies for long-term change.
And look at the beautiful, healthy breakfast we were served! : )
I live-blogged the event over on twitter, if you are interesting in joining in the conversation.
