When you see older, established chains like Starbucks, and Chipotle, and Whole Foods having proventhat you can make money even when you care for how your ingredients were sourced; even when you care for your communities; even when you care about how you treat your customers and your employees – and then you see a whole new wave of chains – like Shake Shack, like Sweetgreen, like Tender Greens, like ‘Witchcraft, blossoming all over the country that care about the exact same things that activists care about, that consumers care … Read More
I think that the one thing we need to do to improve the food system is to connect midsize farmers to the massive market that exists through wholesale channels. And that’s by investing in food hubs around the country, that allow them to aggregate this produce and be sold to communities around the cities and other places, like GrowNYC has recently done with green market Co Our Food Hub, which has been pretty successful to help those midsize farmers or the ones that are disappearing the fastest across the nation … Read More
From my perspective as a microbiologist, as a public health person, one of the main things you can do to change the food system is to quit giving industrial animals antibiotics to make them grow faster, to prevent diseases that are occurring because of the way that we’re raising them. Raise animals in a way that makes them healthy so they don’t need antibiotics. Because what happens is using those antibiotics creates superbugs that can then spread to people. Read More
We need to get animals out of confinement buildings. I feel like the fact that we have animals in factory farms has basically been the nexus for all that is wrong with our food system. Read More
Part of what we’re all trying to do is make sure that everyone everywhere has access to safe, healthy, and sustainable food – and that’s something that inspires me to be part of the movement is to know that it’s possible and know that more people should have that access. Read More
Soil – it’s all about soil. Soil and water. It’s nature, it’s actually very simple – that it starts with the soil and water, and everything else flows from that. As long as we show respect to that nature, I think we’ll be fine. Read More
I think we need to create a new paradigm for what progress looks like – that for centuries, almost, we have looked towards a level of consumption and of lifestyle that have always indicated what it means to have arrived, to have progressed, to have become affluent or to have developed in a larger sense. And what I think is missing actually is the vision of what that looks like for people who are on that path, for cultures and communities who are moving that way. That doesn’t include all … Read More
We do everything from build school gardens to run farmers’ markets to handle food scrap waste in the city of New York and we have about seventy different odd programs that work on food and those issues. But I think the biggest touch that people have with our Greenmarket farmers’ markets which is the largest farmers’ market program in the country. And in Union Square alone, there are 300,000 people walking through that market a day in the summer. So we have a big reach and we can communicate the … Read More
So what I do is I work at this interface between research and policy, and really specifically on this issue of antibiotic resistance. So I’ll go from being in the lab using advanced genomic techniques to understand the spread of superbugs to then working with policy makers to help shape evidence based policies that protect people, and not factory farms.

I’m the founder of the Chef Ann Foundation, and what we do is help school districts all across the country segue from highly processed to scratch cooked food. So we’re really trying to get kids and their parents to understand how important fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, healthy proteins are; how important it is that they are locally sourced and organic when possible. And as I do that, in schools all across the country, where millions of kids are eating better food because of our work, we will change the food … Read More
