Chef + Doctor + Farmer = A Revolution

Join FRESHFARM Markets for a ground-breaking conversation between three fresh-thinking experts, who are rarely at the same table, who just might change the way we think about cooking, medicine, and farming. The panel entitled “Chef + Doctor + Farmer = A Revolution” includes Spike Gjerde, local food advocate and chef/owner of the renowned Woodberry Kitchen; Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, author, professor, oncologist, and an architect of the Affordable Care Act; and Zach Lester, owner of Virginia’s Tree and Leaf Farm and food visionary. They will discuss how innovative (and age-old) farm-to-body practices are transforming the future of eating, healing, and growing food. Corby Kummer, senior food editor for The Atlantic magazine will moderate the discussion. Dr. Katherine Alley, medical director emeritus of Suburban Hospital Breast Cancer Center, will introduce the panel.  The panel is the first for a new FRESHFARM Markets project called “FFM FEED Series.”

“I’m excited to present this panel which brings together three professions – chef, doctor and farmer – who never share a stage together, but whose interaction is guaranteed to produce a revolution around the key issues of health, food and farming,” said Ann Yonkers, FRESHFARM Markets co-founder and co-executive director

The event will take place on Tuesday, September 9, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. at the First Congregational United Church of Christ at 945 G Street, N.W., Washington, D.C., 20001. Tickets are $20. Go here to purchase tickets.
