The 2017 Just Food Conference opened early on a post-Daylight Savings Sunday morning, but the atmosphere in the Cowin Auditorium at Columbia University’s Teachers College was far from sleepy. This year’s theme, A Call to Collaboration, recognized the timely need to organize and unite. Right from the start, the audience was united in a call-and-response:

“What are we here for?”

“Justice!”

Listen here for the opening remarks and Sunday morning’s series of Food Talks.
