Exciting Impact of Food Tank’s Summit

We recently hosted the 1st Annual Food Tank Summit in Washington D.C., which was held in partnership with The George Washington University. It was an exciting event and I’m writing to share with you impacts from the Summit—both its immediate successes and a variety of longer-term outcomes.

Highlights from the Summit include:

  • 400 in-person attendees (completely sold out) from more than 25 states.
  • 15,520 livestream participants from more than 125 countries. The livestream was shown on FoodTank.com, Jamie Oliver’s website, the Forum for the Future website, and the Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition Foundation website.
  • 78 speakers, panelists, and moderators, came from various leading policy organizations, NGOs, nonprofits, federal and state governments, global health organizations, domestic and international corporations, as well as passionate individuals from all over the world. Please view the complete agenda (http://ow.ly/HYTyK).
  • 11 top food journalists on stage as panel moderators from major media outlets including National Public Radio, Bloomberg, The Washington Post, Voice of America, Politico, and more.
  • More than 6 million Twitter impressions including more than 7,500 tweets directly mentioning or using the #FoodTank hashtag (#FoodTank number one “trending” topic on Twitter on Thursday, January 22 and number two “trending” topic on Wednesday, January 21).
  • 500 attendees to the Food Tank dinner and reception the first evening with Washington Post Food Editor Joe Yonan, Chef Jose Andres, Congresswoman Pingree, and others.
