Food Tank, in partnership with American University, is hosting the 2nd Annual Food Tank Summit in Washington, D.C. on April 20–21, 2016.

This two-day event will feature more than 75 different speakers from the food and agriculture field. Researchers, farmers, chefs, policymakers, government officials, and students will come together for panels on topics including food waste, urban agriculture, family farmers, farm workers, and more.

Food Tank recently had the opportunity to speak with Sara Roversi, the Co-Founder of You Can Group and Future Food Institute, an entrepreneurial ecosystem that fuels the creation of new startups in the food and tech sectors. Sara will be speaking at the summit.

Food Tank (FT): What inspired you to get involved in food and agriculture?

Sara Roversi (SR): I believe that food is a global language and a driver for global economic prosperity. Food is a passion that has enabled me to transcend borders, connect with people, and expand my knowledge horizons. Food is a catalyst for change and food players are pioneers, responsible for more than just the bottom line. Their choices will have tremendous impacts on human health and on world sustainability. Food is the all-encompassing element that is also a central focus in all of our global challenges and has inspired me to explore how to face these challenges with like-minded individuals and innovative approaches.
