(As of 10/26/15.)

After 5 years of organizing Food Summits, we will NOT be hosting a 6th event this year nor do we have any planned for future years. 

We decided several months ago to look back on 5 years of annual Food Summits and reassess and re-evaluate. A  team from Stanford Design School helped us to do a needs assessment, and for 2015 we decided to not run a Food Summit. Our goal is to move on and generate new forums for discussions around Food Systems.

But before initiating any new events we want to spend more time talking to our colleagues on campus to determine their interests and optimize the opportunities for collaboration, doing more building from the ground up.

So, stay tuned. In the future we hope to find new ways to engage you, learn from you, and collaborate with you.

A sincere Thank You to those of you who came and participated  from 2010-2014! We hope some of you will continue to find some of the archived materials interesting of helpful.

We do have a new Food Systems listserve, as the Food Summit listserve is also no longer active. If you are not yet on that list and have questions, please email us ( We will continue to use it to advertise events that you may find of interest.




Food Summit 5 - 2014 Highlights:

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!

The Food Summit Team
