About the Brooklyn Food Conference
Food issues hit home for all of Brooklyn–from school lunches, the rise in diabetes, and escalating food costs to immigration, farmers markets and local food challenges and delights, food touches us all. Come join us for a day of workshops, food demos, and a kids’ food fair. Lunch and dinner will be available for purchase. Dance following dinner. The conference will be FREE to all participants.

P.S -
The BFC is waste free! To help lessen the BFC’s impact on the environment, don’t forget to bring a reusable water bottle and cloth bag to the event. We will also be composting kitchen scraps. Click here to learn more about the BFC’s Zero Waste Challenge.

Thanks for posting this info, Lisanne. This is really going to be a great event for all who care about and love FOOD! Hundreds of volunteers have worked for almost a year to make this happen.And what is better than FREE?
