Food For Thought Showcases
May 7 & June 4, 2018 | Robert & Margrit Mondavi Center, UC Davis | 4pm-7pm
The UC Davis World Food Center hosted two Food For Thought Showcases, where more than 500 guests from the Davis community discovered over 30 of the centers and institutes at UC Davis shaping the future of food. On May 7 and June 4 in the Robert & Margrit Mondavi Center, we were joined by UC Davis faculty, staff, and students as well as representatives from the regional food industry, local governments, and NGOs for this exciting engagement.
The program began with a series of elevator pitches from UC Davis programs, institutes, and centers in the Studio Theatre that highlighted their innovative work in food systems. After the pitch session, our networking reception and showcase in the Grand Lobby brought the guests together with the presenting centers for conversation and libations.
