On June 16th, 2015, Change Food reunited with TEDxManhattan 2015 speakers Michele Merkel of Food & Water Justice and Kendra Kimbirauskas of the Socially Responsible Agricultural Project in New York City to host the Facing Factory Farms Salon. Joined by a diverse group of attendees, we sought to accomplish three goals:
- Generate actionable ideas on how to fight the growing presence of factory farming in the U.S.
- Discuss how to involve urban residents and students in fighting factory farming and other food issues.
- Use this Salon as a template for other interested individuals to create their own event around a food issue.
After showing Kendra and Michele’s talks, each speaker gave a brief update on their work followed by an open forum with the speakers and the audience. Check out our full blog post here.
