“I will be leading a group of Atlanta’s chefs backed up with the enthusiastic support of local farmers and food purveyors. By changing our menus, we believe we change the lives of our suppliers, our customers, and the world we all share. Chefs and food professionals are powerful change agents, and we need more change makers at the table.”

— Atlanta Host Committee Leader chef Steven Satterfield
