Foodprint LA was the fourth in a series of international conversations about food and the city. From obesogenic design to grey water usage, and from taco history to synthetic biology, panelists discussed the past, present, and future of food in LA. The free afternoon program included designers, policy-makers, artists, entrepreneurs, and others.
Our second panel was called Culinary Cartography. We asked food critic Jonathan Gold, Mary Lee, Deputy Director of the Center for Health Equity and Place at PolicyLink, participatory mapping scholar Benjamin Stokes, and Teague Weybright, current Board President of the Los Angeles Community Garden Council, what we can learn when we map Los Angeles using food as the metric.
