On October 28th, Arrell Food Institute hosted the 4th Arrell Food Summit, the second hosted digitally. Welcoming over 350 attendees, the Summit featured an agenda of international speakers who explored how to turn ideas into action and accelerate food systems change. Chefs Rich Francis and Joshna Maharaj encouraged participants to use food as a tool to shake up colonial and unhealthy institutions, while Maple Leaf Food’s Nadia Theodore shared how to bridge gaps between government, industry, and others on progressive food policy.
