Are you a foodie? Do you dream about milking cows while in class? Are you interested in learning how to eat more sustainably? Are you curious about how to fight climate change? Then the Hazon Food Conference is for you! Join us, along with other food enthusiasts - farmers, rabbis, educators, chefs, writers, students, and professionals - to connect with, and continue to build, the New Jewish Food Movement. Be there as the Jewish food community gathers to celebrate and explore how we make food choices in relation to our tradition and how to connect these choices in our everyday life.
The deadline for applications is Tuesday November 15. More information and the full scholarship application can be found here. Please share with your networks.
