On Monday, The LBJ Future Forum kicked-off the fall with a program on sustainable food. Panelists included David Davenport, CAFB President and CEO; Max Elliott, Urban Roots; and Ronda Rutledge, Executive Director of the Sustainable Food Center. Adrienne Longenecker, CAFB VP Community Relations served as the moderator.
- The general sustainability of our food system in Central Texas, Texas, nationally and globally
- Whether or not the food needs in our community are being met
- Current and local programs/organizations addressing food issues, and our successes and opportunities
“The event was a great discussion of the challenges, and also of the hopes that we are seeing some real changes being made.” – Catherine Robb, founder and chairman, LBJ Library Future Forum and lawyer with the Austin office of Sedgwick, Detert, Moran & Arnold, LLP.
“I was proud to serve on the Future Forum panel discussing Sustainable Food Systems,” said Davenport. “The movement toward a more sustainable and hunger-free community gained a great deal of momentum at this event. Our community needs more opportunities to discuss challenges we will face and opportunities we can collectively embrace as our food systems continue to change.”
