The Auditorium, Room A106, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall 66 West 12th Street, New York, NY 10011

Join the nation's food movers and shakers at a 2-day celebration and discussion of where the American food movement is, and where it's going.

This annual think tank, part of the meeting of Edible magazine publishers from around the nation, will feature talks and panels by farmers, chefs, drink makers, journalists, investors and food and drink enthusiasts (like you).

Topics will include: building sustainable food businesses in cities; scaling up good food in foodservice; whither foodtech and how can it change the food system; why should Americans eat more regional seafood; does independent food journalism matter; what can we learn from other regions and nations about fracking; and is the good food movement drinking enough.

Attendees enjoy two days of discussions at The New School in Manhattan, as well as invitations to selected events during the weekend, from walking tours of Brooklyn's rooftop gardens to bus trips to Hudson Valley wine country to a live FoodTech meetup.

Featuring: Mark Bittman (keynote), Anna Lappe (keynote), Tom Philpott, Gary Paul Nabhan, Dan Barber, Danielle Gould, Jane BlackDanielle NierenbergBrian Halweil, Fabio ParasecoliAndrew F. Smith, Nevin Cohen, and many more from the nation's local food and drink community.
