Register now for the Friday, June 18 Food Alliance event at the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) in Seattle with Dr. Temple Grandin. This is a unique opportunity to meet Dr. Grandin and leaders in sustainable food and animal welfare. The event benefits Food Alliance, where I serve on the board. It’s the first Food Alliance event in Seattle.

By way of background, Dr. Grandin was recently named one of the most influential people of 2010 by Time magazine. She has authored more than 400 articles on animal welfare, livestock handling and facility design. Her books, Animals in Translation and Animals Make Us Human, were both on the New York Times best seller list. To learn more about Dr. Grandin and her work, click here.

This event includes:

• Lecture and book signing by Dr. Temple Grandin

• Hors d’oeuvres reception featuring local Food Alliance Certified ingredients

• Panel presentation with farmers, ranchers and food businesses committed to greater sustainability in animal agriculture and the food system

• Special showing of the HBO film, Temple Grandin, starring Claire Danes, David Strathairn and Catherine O’Hara

Proceeds from this event will help ensure continual improvement of Food Alliance certification standards for healthy and humane treatment of livestock.
