Description

Join foodies, experts, and your neighbors at the Let’s Talk About Food Festival in Boston's Copley Square for a day of engagement and conversation about our changing food system. Let's break bread and come together to learn more about how what we eat affects our bodies, our planet, our economy, and our future.

At our Endless Table, seekers and experts will discuss provocative questions and lively points about food technology, food waste, fisheries and aquaculture, labels and marketing, agriculture, and childhood obesity. Come meet some of Boston's most knowledgeable minds and hear how they are transforming the ways that we grow, make, and share our foods.

At the Lexicon of Sustainability pop-up exhibit, learn the vocabulary of sustainable agriculture through Douglas Gayeton's "information art" photo collages. Gayeton, co-creator of the Lexicon of Sustainability project (photographs, exhibits, short films, and books), will be at the festival to meet attendees and sign his new book, Local: The New Face of Food and Farming in America.

Join us for a dialogue about how we as a community can affect the future of food!

Funding for the Endless Table provided by the Lowell Institute.

Support for the pop-up exhibit at the festival provided by the David and Marion Ellis Endowment Fund and the Lexicon of Sustainability.
