On April 16, Momofuku founder David Chang will join Jim Yong Kim, president of the World Bank Group, for a conversation about the future of food, focusing on how chefs can help address global issues of food security, at the World Bank in Washington, D.C.
The event will begin with a presentation from Juergen Voegele, senior director of agricultural global practice at the World Bank, who recently led the organization’s push to end food insecurity by 2030. Mark Emil Hermansen, head of development at MAD — René Redzepi’s global food collective of chefs, farmers, and industry leaders — will commence MAD’s portion of the program, with talks by several alumni from the group.
The talk will conclude with a joint discussion between David Chang and Arielle Johnson, MAD’s head of research, about the ways in which consumers can better use “underutilized, fermented, orphaned and 'wasted' ingredients” to create nutritious meals.
The event will be live-streamed on the MAD Feed beginning 11 a.m. EST and all talks will be subsequently available for stream and download.
