Will Allen: Growing Power and the Good Food Revolution
Join the Food Law Society and the Resnick Program for Food Law and Policy for an evening with Will Allen, CEO of Growing Power, Inc. for a discussion on urban agriculture and building community food security systems.
The Food Law Society is proud to announce our first event of the year! Will Allen will be speaking about Growing Power and the Good Food Revolution. Allen is a former professional basketball player who changed the trajectory of his life when children in his then-hometown of Milwaukee asked for advice for how to grow their own vegetables. Allen is now CEO of Growing Power, Inc., a not-for-profit center that focuses on supporting urban agriculture and building community food security systems. Allen was awarded the MacArthur "Genius Grant" in 2008 and also worked with First Lady Michelle Obama on her "Let's Move!" initiative.
