Brooklyn Food Conference Discusses Restaurants And Sustainability

Yesterday’s Brooklyn Food Conference was a rousing success, and Jimmy’s No. 43 was happy to be in attendance for a panel that discussed Sustainable Restaurants: Triple Bottom Line of Profitability, Sustainability and Social Justice. Jimmy Carbone joined Bill Telepan (Telepan Restaurant), iCi’s Catherine Saillard, Francine Stephens (Franny’s, Brooklyn Larder), and moderator Leaonard Lopate (WNYC Radio) to talk about how restauranteurs play a crucial role in community building, the food movement, and creating a truly sustainable business.

The Brooklyn Food Conference was sponsored by Brooklyn Food Coalition at Brooklyn Technical High School, with co-sponsors City Harvest, Edible (Brooklyn and Manhattan), Food & Water Watch, Food Bank for New York City, Park Slope Food Co-op, and Small Planet Institute.
