About this project

Help bring Foodprint Project to Los Angeles!

Since the beginning of 2010, we have put on two extraordinarily successful events, first in New York City, then in Toronto. Both events—executed on a shoestring—brought together hundreds of people for dynamic conversations about food and the city.

In January 2011, we are planning to hold the third Foodprint Project event in Los Angeles, but we need your help. As with the last two events, we'll host an afternoon of panels on numerous topics, including school lunch, city food policy, restaurant entrepreneurship, community meals as public art, and the future of urban farming and food distribution.

For Foodprint LA we're also adding some exciting social and interactive events, including an urban food map walking tour and a VIP party for supporters of the project.

The money you donate to Foodprint LA will go towards venue rental, A/V equipment and recording fees so that we can livestream the program, light refreshments for panelists and audience, travel and lodging for the organizers, and other expenses related directly to the event.

Donors at the $65 level will be invited to join the curators and speakers of Foodprint LA the night before the event for a special reception and dinner. Donors who give $30 or more will be invited to join our interactive walking tour the following morning at no cost.

About Foodprint Project
The Foodprint Project was launched by Nicola Twilley and Sarah Rich in 2010 as a collaborative exploration of urban food systems. Our goal is to bring together people with diverse backgrounds and expertise to start a conversation about using food as a design tool to make our cities more resilient, sustainable, and healthy.
