  • What are You Doing to Change the Food System? – Marcel Van Ooyen

    Change Food

    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 […]

    Change Food

    What we’re doing at Bitty Foods is trying to introduce a new, extremely sustainable source of protein into the food system, and to create food products that introduce edible insects as a sustainable form of protein that’s really delicious, that takes away the fear factor around unfamiliar foods and introduces them as something comforting, familiar, […]

    My husband Drew and I started Earthbound Farm 31 years ago and I think what our company has done – lots of people all together, our farmers and all people that work with Earthbound Farm – is that we’ve shown that organic farming is viable on a large scale, and that we have products that […]

    Change Food

    I have been farming for four years, with my dad on our small organic farm in California and I am so blessed to get to interact with eaters. And there’s two stories: My dad was going to bulldoze what is now our oldest variety of peaches because in the 80’s, no one wanted to buy […]

    At Bright Farms, we’re building local greenhouse farms for supermarkets in the Northeast and Midwest bringing healthy, fresh, short supply-chain food to people who otherwise couldn’t get it on a year-round basis.

    Change Food

    I’m still teaching full-time. I’ve geared all my classes to have some type of dialogue about the food movement, whether the class is on food or not. Currently working with Alison Cayne of Haven’s Kitchen on “Preserved” which is our short film series. And we’re working to start to savor a lot of the narrative […]

  • What are you doing to change the Food System? – Stefanie Sacks

    Change Food

    I just wrote the book, “What the Fork are you Eating,” and so hopefully with that book I’m going to have the great opportunity to educate so many people whether they’re nutrition neophytes or nutrition mavens to understand how their choices impact not only their health but also the health of the environment. So really […]

  • What are You Doing to Change the Food System? – Tom Colicchio

    Change Food

    I’m using whatever celebrity I have to get the message out there. I’ve been very active around issues of hunger, creating a better sustainable food system, and I have a platform now at MSNBC that will hopefully get that message out there as well. So again, this is about educating the population and letting them […]

  • What does the Food Movement need to succeed? – George Faison

    Change Food

    It’ll have to come from the grassroots, with people petitioning. When the organic standards were developed there was a movement to allow industrial sewage, or basic sewage refuge to be used as a fertilizer. And it was only the grassroots movement that stopped that from being allowed. In other words – it was a natural […]

  • What does the Food Movement need to succeed? – Urvashi Rangan

    Change Food

    The one thing that the food movement could use in order to really succeed is some level of cohesion. We see advocacy groups bonding together and coalitions; a lot of like-minded people bonded with like-minded people. I think in order to get the systemic change we’re looking for and really to get out to the […]

  • What is the biggest problem with the Food System? – Andrew Gunther

    Change Food

    I think the biggest problem with our food system today is our focus on the actual physical financial price of meat – so what I mean is, the nickel and dimes of meat – so it’s all about the cost rather than the real cost and the externalities, so we’re looking for what the consumer […]

  • What is the biggest problem with the Food System? – Chuck Eggert

    Change Food

    Personally I think the biggest problem is that the big manufacturing companies don’t know how to get the problem solved – that they’ve gone so far down a path of getting bigger and consolidating, and that there’s really not a clear path to simplifying what they’re doing. And I think that’s going to create a […]
