No matter your demographics, your job or your political affiliations, you likely hold this belief: that no person should go hungry and all people deserve access to healthy, real food. And yet today, more than 50 million Americans don’t have enough to eat, as the divide separating the healthy food “haves” and “have nots” widens.

Solving this complex problem, while creating new opportunities for brands, retailers, communities and individuals alike, is the focus of Esca Bona.

We’ll address this year’s theme of diversity in 4 pillars:

How farming and the supply chain is changing to bring healthy and affordable food to the masses and the many opportunities that are being built out of these changes

The lives behind the food access problem and why these people and families should be our focus as businesses and a food industry

Why it will take “big” and “small” working together in new ways to bring more equality and sovereignty to our food system and how this is a good thing for everyone

The role of technology, innovation and influencers in igniting the consumer activation needed to fuel meaningful change
