Is Sustainability for Me?

Sustainability Series

Danielle Leoni

  • Executive Chef
  • Owner of The Breadfruit & Rum Bar

Hailed as one of the top innovative chefs of the Valley, Executive Chef Danielle Leoni has lived up to that distinction with an avant-garde approach to blending Arizona farm-fresh ingredients, with the tropical traditions of Jamaica. Her passion for sustainable change within our food system from land to sea has brought her national recognition.

Sustainable initiatives such as eliminating plastic straws and supporting local farming are shaping the expectations of diners and have garnered the attention of the media. Why is it that considerably few restaurants are implementing sustainability initiatives despite this widespread awareness and success of their peers? In this talk, Leoni will discuss the realm of sustainability activism within the food industry.

A light Lunch will be served.
