National Summit 2013

2013SummitLogo_WebFor three days this past November, more than 300 chefs and food professionals descended upon Charleston, SC for three days of learning, networking, workshopping, and of course – eating.

Thank you so much to everyone who made our 2013 Sustainable Food Summit a smashing success, especially our sponsors and key organizers.

Whether you attended for the first time, returned for a fifth year, moderated a session, or generously helped underwrite a portion of the event, we are so proud of what we accomplished together!

We also want to offer huge congratulations to the 2013 Sustainability Award winners.
