5th Annual UVM Food Systems Summit

"What Makes Food Good?"
June 14-15, 2016 | Burlington, VT

The UVM Food Systems Summit is an annual event drawing scholars, practitioners, and food systems leaders to engage in dialogue on the pressing food systems issues facing our world.

As individuals and communities, our social, environmental, and political values greatly influence our sense of the "good." In the context of food systems, we may favor certain agricultural production practices, culinary traditions, or labor policies. The 2016 Summit theme is an invitation for us to unpack the assumptions and biases that underpin our perspectives on how the food system should work.
