The emcee will be Deirdre Campbell of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
Food is both an incredibly personal subject and a global concern. Many of us go to the store to buy our food and drink and that’s that. For many others, that’s not the case. As impassioned foodies and global citizens we know the term food is complex and deeply nuanced. FoodWorx seeks to initiate a conversation about a wide range of topics in food with an eye to what issues will look like in the next five to 10 years.
