There is an explosion in the number of services created to help people make better choices about how we produce, consume, and interact with food. Challenges related to the accuracy and completeness of data hamper the rate of innovation. A panel of leading food, data and technology doers shares their initial framework for an open standard for reporting, recording and sharing food information. Hear how recipe sites, restaurant menu wranglers, open government developers, urban agronomists, provenance geeks and food policy activists are collaborating on an interoperable standard. Panelists will share their unique perspectives and invite new collaborators to expand, refine, and put into practice an open standard. The open food data standard describes all aspects of food, in a way that allows technologists to support and enhance the success of the local food economy. Come find out how you can take part in the generation of an open data standard for food that reflects the values we place in food.
