Food Tank, in partnership with American University, is excited to announce the 2nd Annual Washington, D.C. Food Tank Summit at the School of International Service.

This two-day event will feature more than 70 different speakers from the food and agriculture field. Researchers, farmers, chefs, policy makers, government officials, and students will come together for panels on topics including; nourishing the planet, improving nutrient density, the future of organic, investing in the food movement, legislating change in the food system, and more.

The event will feature interactive panels moderated by top food journalists, networking, and delicious food. This is the first in a series of four two-day Summits in 2016 which will bring together some the world’s most impactful food system leaders. Last year, the Food Tank Summit sold out in minutes and drew in more than 15,500 livestream viewers. This is a can’t miss event for 2016!
