What We Do
The Berry Good Food Foundation believes that a strong local and sustainable food community is good for San Diego and San Diegans. So we educate, connect and support food producers and consumers through a variety of programs and events, from cheesemaking classes to expert panel discussions to farm dinners.
Free and open to the public, this thought-provoking series of multidisciplinary panels present varying viewpoints on sustainable food-related topics, such as the climate benefits of creating carbon-rich soil, the impact of meat production and consumption, strategies for combatting food waste and ways to build a more sustainable seafood system. UCTV videotapes the panel discussions, distributing the broadcast through its networks.
