Scaling Sustainability: Sourcing Locally with Whole Foods

Wednesday, November 7 at 4:00 pm

Free

 

We all know about buying local, supporting farmers' markets and CSAs. But what about those still-necessary trips to the grocery store-- what should we be buying there? And who decides what ends up on the shelves? Join Whole Foods' Global Produce Buyer, Erik Brown, JD Kemp, CEO of Northeast Food Exchange, and Lee Kane, Whole Foods' North Atlantic Regional Forager, for a conversation about who and what dictate our options at one of the country's largest grocery retailers.

 

Sponsored by: Yale Sustainable Food Project, Yale Peabody Museum, CARE (Community Alliance for Research and Engagement) and CAFE (the Coalition on Agriculture, Food, and the Environment at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies)
