Michael Pollan, Alice Waters and other food activists have advocated for radical changes in U.S. food policy. But those changes could have a surprising impact on people living in poverty. According to the San Francisco Food Bank, 150,000 people in San Francisco (including one in every four children) are unsure where their next meal is coming from. This panel will examine the future of food in our city, state and country and the impact reforms may have on the hungry. How can we create a food system that is good, clean and fair for all?
