Will Allen at New Haven Food SummitWill Allen at New Haven Food SummitNew Haven, CT - Will Allen, CEO of Growing Power, has been to many a food summit. Many a local food conference, many small farm fundraisers. He travels around the country and sees first hand what cities are doing to ensure their local food system is vibrant and healthy and he gives first hand advice on what to do next. So he's seen alot but he told me that he saw something at the New Haven Food Summit 2012 on October 12th that he had never seen before: a community coming together to prepare a meal, and then discuss what they ate and how it got there. And how to make it better.
