A Crisis in Confidence: Creating a Better, More Sustainable Food World We Can Trust

A James Beard Foundation conference in New York this October 17 and 18.
As America’s fascination with food grows, the issues that surround our food system have taken on tremendous national importance. Recognizing our unique role in celebrating, nurturing, and preserving America’s diverse culinary heritage and future, the James Beard Foundation has inaugurated two important new programs: the annual James Beard Foundation Food Conference and the James Beard Foundation Leadership Awards.

On October 17 and 18, 2012, please join the James Beard Foundation at their annual JBF Food Conference and Leadership Awards at the Hearst Tower in New York City. To receive updates and registration information, please send them a note at:

“The James Beard Foundation Food Conference was a catalyst for realizing the necessity to capitalize on intelligent, committed entrepreneurs in the food system by formally creating a venture fund to meet the growing needs of this good food sector.” — Jason Ingle, Founder, Closed Loop Capital and Greener Partners

Also, join them for the Second Annual JBF Leadership Awards on October 17! For more information, visit the JBF website.
