Changing The Way A Generation Thinks About Food

This select session of the Young Farmers Conference was live streamed on our Facebook page on Thursday, December 7th, 2017 at Stone Barns Center.

Changing The Way A Generation Thinks About Food

Led by Dan Giusti, the former head chef of Noma in Copenhagen, Brigaid recruits professionally trained chefs to each lead school kitchens with the goal of cooking delicious food from scratch. Moreover, all of Brigaid’s meals meet the National School Lunch Program budgetary and nutritional guidelines. In this session, Giusti talks about ways that Brigaid changes the way the students in our schools think about food, from communication and education to making food more delicious. We discuss success stories and, perhaps more importantly, failures. We close with a group discussion on how to move forward and how we can involve all areas of the food community to promote and accelerate this change.
