Food Tank, in partnership with Emory University and Spelman College, recently hosted the “Empowering Eaters” Summit in support of the National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health. This episode of “Food Talk with Dani Nierenberg” features a panel from the Summit focused on food as medicine and the approaches that nutrition experts, researchers, and private sector leaders are taking to ensure that all eaters have access to affordable, nutritious, and culturally relevant foods. Panelists discuss healthy consumption patterns that go beyond the Mediterranean diet, cultivating a generation of compassionate scholars, and why we can’t lose sight of the joy that food brings. 

Speakers include Tamara Melton, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Diversify Dietetics; Tambra Raye Stevenson, Founder and CEO of Women Advancing Nutrition Dietetics and Agriculture (WANDA); Dr. Kimberly Jackson, Director of Food Studies at Spelman College; Karuna Rawal, Chief Revenue Officer and Chief Marketing Officer for Nature’s Fynd; and Steven Jennings, Stakeholder Relations and Brand Lead for Health & Sustainability at Ahold Delhaize USA.
