Time: 4:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Hear from a distinguished panel of experts as they share their insights on How can we expand access to food and reduce waste?"

Having the power to change any aspect of our food system sounds like a lot to take on. But what if even the simplest action could cause a revolution? As our world changes, we are forced to consider possibilities we may not have otherwise in order to break down systemic barriers and create new and lasting solutions. These imaginative pioneers are rewriting the rules within our food system to provide vital pathways for access. Leaders of these changes are creating new ways to serve those in need, provide disaster relief, and fight against food waste.

Tickets include access to the panel discussion and a pre-event reception to meet-and-mingle with featured panelists and enjoy wine and bites. During the reception, panelists will also be available to sign their cookbooks and/or latest releases, which will be available for purchase.


Conversations at Copia is a live talk series that brings together the pioneers of constructive disruption within the worlds of food, beverage, and hospitality to share their stories of positive change.

Brought to you by The Culinary Institute of America and moderated by American culinary expert and chef Andrew Zimmern, this compelling series is designed to foster insight, inspiration, and global innovation transformation in the culinary industry and in our communities.
