Mark Bittman Special Advisor on Food Policy at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health Former New York Times columnist and bestselling author

Panelists: Ian KnauerJohanna Obenda, and Peter Prime

Host: Emily Dietsch

Join us for a virtual panel with food culture influencers, restaurateurs, and scholars to examine what we put on our plates (and why) amidst a COVID-19 context.

This year’s public health crisis has heightened attention to matters of cooking and food insecurity for many Americans, while simultaneously serving as the backdrop to intensified national conversations about race, identity, and belonging. Our expert Panelists will explore those twin developments, tease out links between food justice and social justice, and invite us to think more deeply about how we eat. The discussion will also touch on fundamental disruptions to the U.S. food system, including thoughts on which changes could be here to stay both at home and in the restaurant industry.
