RESTAURANTS AS LEADERS IN COMMUNITY FOOD SYSTEMS

A PRE-CONFERENCE FORUM FOR FOOD SERVICE WORKERS, RESTAURATEURS, CONCERNED DINERS, AND ADVOCATES FOR FAIRNESS IN THE INDUSTRY

Attention restaurant workers, chefs, restaurateurs, investors, and sustainability-minded
diners: Are you a leader or an aspiring leader in community food systems advocacy? Is
your business making strides to become more socially mindful and inclusive? If so, please
consider joining your peers in a social justice-focused discussion and working group at the
2017 Community Food Systems Conference. We believe culinarians and restaurant owners
and workers have much to contribute to community food systems work and our
conference themes of food security, social justice, and sustainable agriculture. We
encourage attendance and participation from any culinary/food service professionals
who would like to stoke the conversation around fairness, equity, and sustainability in the
restaurant industry and the food system at large.
