FOOD IT: Fork to Farm

June 27 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm PDT

Computer History Museum

1401 N Shoreline Blvd, Mountain View, CA 94043

PRESENTING SPONSORS

Join the FOOD IT Community for Our Fourth Year

During our annual gathering we will explore the theme of “Fork to Farm”. In the food system, technology is now enabling the consumer’s fork to become mightier than the producers’ farm. We want to discuss the shift in power caused by the rise of the tech-enabled food consumer, its upstream production and supply implications as well as downstream societal consequences.

 

~Thematically aligned food & beverage from Google Food, Off-The-Grid &

The Whole Cart will be provided throughout the day~
