Citizen Eaters: Food Voters in the 2020 Election

For those passionate about food systems change, every bite is an opportunity for reform. With the 2020 presidential campaign season in full swing, a growing cohort of “Citizen Eaters” have the opportunity to not only vote with their forks, but head to the ballot to vote with their votes. In this comprehensive session, our panel speakers will discuss the most pressing food issues at the center of the presidential election and how to push legislators at every level to build a thriving and equitable food system. Join Navina Khanna (HEAL Food Alliance), Spike Mendelsohn (Chef and Food Policy Advocate), Bob Martin (Center for a Livable Future), and Danielle Nierenberg (Food Tank) to get inspired, informed, and ready to take action!
