Have you ever heard of TED? If you haven’t, you need to! TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. TED supports those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. People who have spoken at TED include, Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Jamie Oliver, and Isabel Allende.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Luckily enough, Toronto will be hosting their own TEDx day THIS December. The conference is called TEDx Hart House: “The Future of Food and will be held at Toronto’s Hart House. The event is December 6th at 6:00pm. The Future of Food will explore some of the factors we must weigh as we choose what foods make it into our shopping carts. With the rise of issues like ethical eating, factor farming and food scarcity, the world is awakening to how we sow, grow, raise, reap, slaughter, transport, distribute, buy, share, cook, eat and dispose of food.”

Four experts will speak at TEDx – sharing their views on two-tiered food systems, food sharing, local food movements and sustainability. Those speaking will be Jason Qu, Lauren Baker, Jeffrey Crump and Bettina Schorman.

Interested in this event? Do you love things like Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution? Well here you go – this is the place to learn even more and at an attainable local level. This is the exact type of events we need today! Share your love of food with others by learning more on what you can do!
