About the Event

In 1980, Dr. Joan Dye Gussow said, “teaching about food and nutrition is the most important educational activity of a society.” Forty years later we are broadening our focus to address today’s critical food system issues, in addition to promoting public health. Our planet is in crisis. Soil degradation, water scarcity and pollution, severe weather, biodiversity loss, and climate change are no longer future possibilities. They are upon us. Additionally, too much of our food supply promotes diseases such as type two diabetes that reduce quality of life and increase health care costs, and it is the poor and people of color who are afflicted most severely. How we produce our food is part of the problem but could be part of the solution. Switching to soil-building, water saving, carbon sequestering regenerative agriculture and to diets with more whole and plant-based foods, and fewer processed foods improves food systems and public health. Yet, we know food and nutrition is a politically charged subject and our profession will have to confront entrenched power structures by taking on Big Food. While this will not be easy, it is critical. This conference will imagine, and plan for how nutrition education, rooted in food, can move us to a new food future.
