The 5th Annual Food Summit was another huge success!  The day program packed McCaw Hall with many people standing in the back. Our speakers were incredible! You can find the recipes from the cooking demos on the Day Program page.  Videos of the morning session will be posted shortly.

The Poster Sessions and Community Tables allowed a number of groups and individuals to talk about their work. We have added information about all of the study posters to the Student Poster page and the links to our partners can be found on the Community Partners page.

The lunch was amazing!  We also added links to some of the farms from which the food was sourced. This can be found on the Lunch Menu page.

The afternoon session allowed for more in-depth conversations on a variety of food topics, and the afternoon panelists sparked a lot of great discussion! 

For those of you that missed the Film Screening, Occupy the Farm is a great documentary and I hope you can all find some time to see it in Berkeley during the formal release.

None of this would be possible if it weren't for the generous donations from our sponsors.  Thank you!

Thank you all for making this such a huge success!

SAVE THE DATE:  Food Summit 6 will be on Wednesday, October 28, 2015.

The Food Summit Team

This year’s fifth Stanford Food Summit will build on the four prior successful annual events.

The first Food Summit, held in the Fall of 2010, demonstrated the breadth and depth of interest in Food issues across the 7 schools of the University (Medicine, Earth Sciences, Business, Humanities & Sciences, Law, Education, and Engineering). The target audience was primarily academics. The second and third Summits opened up the target audience to include community-based food groups/organizations, and included presentations of pilot collaborative research projects in the areas of Hospital Food, Food Bank Food, Farm to School Food, and Food Policy. The fourth Summit focused on careers in food systems and engaged a number of Stanford students

The 2014 Food Summit 5 will provide a forum for focusing on Connections in Food.

Food Summit 5 will feature two separate events, a Day Program (speakers, a showcase of community organizations and scholarly student food projects, a fabulous lunch, and interactive afternoon discussions between panelists and attendees); and an Evening Film Screening with a private pre-release screening of Occupy the Farm exclusively for registered participants of the Food Summit and invited guests.  The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers.
