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
