Meet our keynote speaker:
As the senior scientist and director of the Food and Environment Program at the Union of Concerned Scientists, Salvador works with citizens, scientists, economists, and politicians to transition our current food system into one that grows healthy foods while employing sustainable and socially equitable practices.
About our evening program partner:
Helping us curate the evening’s program is Civil Eats, a James Beard Award-winning publication working to tell the story of how our nation eats. Since 2009, Civil Eats has been a vital resource for the food community. Their more than 100 contributors are active participants in the evolving food landscape from Capital Hill to Main Street, focusing on stories that shift the conversation around sustainable agriculture in an effort to build economically and socially just communities.
Our Center Stage Sponsor
Beneficial State Bank was fashioned in the image of the great socially responsible banks and credit unions of national and international fame. The Bank is mandated to produce meaningful social justice and environmental benefits at the same time that it is financially sustainable. Beneficial State Bank Foundation owns all of the economic rights of the Bank — when profits of the Bank are distributed, they can only be distributed to the Foundation which is mandated to reinvest those proceeds back into the communities and the environment on which we all depend. In our theory and experience, this ownership model aligns our incentives with the triple bottom line and the values of our bank customers.
