Two years ago, Gary Hirshberg spoke at the Food and Health Forum’s first dinner seminar at the Blue Moon Evolution. He spoke to sold out crowd about actions and results that can encourage us to embrace sustainability goals in all that we do.
Since then, Gary has been forging the path to ensure that food companies label products that contain genetically engineered organisms. He is Chairman and a founding Partner of “Just Label It, We Have the Right to Know,” the national campaign to label genetically engineered foods, and is co-author of Label It Now – What You Need to Know About Genetically Engineered Foods.
America’s biggest food fight – whether or not to label genetically engineered foods is just the tip of the iceberg of a much more fundamental question about how to ensure the safety and sustainability of our foods. Gary will speak about how we can all help to invent a healthier food future.
Gary is Chairman of Stonyfield Farm, the world’s leading organic yogurt producer, and Managing Director of Stonyfield Europe, with organic brands in Ireland and France. Gary serves on several corporate and nonprofit boards including Applegate, Honest Tea, Peak Organic Brewing, Late July, Quantum Design, Glenisk, the Danone Communities Fund and the Danone Livelihoods Fund. In 2011, President Obama appointed Gary to serve on the Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations.
He is also a Co-Chair of AGree, an agricultural policy initiative formed by the Ford, Gates, Kellogg, Rockefeller, Walton and other leading foundations. Gary has received twelve honorary doctorates and numerous awards for corporate and environmental leadership including a 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award by the US EPA. He is the author of Stirring It Up: How to Make Money and Save the World.
Gary is also husband of Inc. Columnist and Author Meg Hirshberg. He is also on the Boards of Applegate Honest Tea, Late July, Orgain, Peak Organic Brewing, Sweetgreen, UnReal, and Quantum Technologies.

Here are some more testimonials from last year’s participants:
“I can’t thank you enough for this challenge!! While I have not been perfect, the foods that I have eaten we’re all on the list (except a couple) and I have more energy than I ever remember!! I have also lost over 10 pounds and with my gym routine, have lost inches as well. I also have had a green juice drink every day for months but have really felt the difference with the right foods in my diet. I will continue with this life style of nourishing my body! Thanks again!”
“Approaching 45, I wanted to stop looking at my relationship with food as a problem and instead it as something to celebrate. The Challenge helped me to recalibrate my eating habits and shift my cravings, and I feel energized and stronger as a result. Making healthy choices about what I eat and how I cook for my family is empowering, and when I know that my food choices are also earth-friendly and support local growers and small businesses, I feel even better. And, who knew kale and quinoa could taste so good in so many different ways? Thank you for giving me this gift.”
“The challenge was a great motivator to explore new ways and great recipes to use fresh foods especially greens. The suggestions and hints kept interest high and kept me from falling back in more convenient ways. I felt good and had more sustained energy most days. Losing weight was not a goal as this was not necessary but I did loose enough to have my clothes fit more comfortably.”
“I never felt deprived or like I was ‘trying’ to lose weight, but was successful in losing 10+ lbs. In the last few days I went on vacation, where I admit to choosing what I thought I wanted to eat. I found myself craving the things that were on menu and shopping list. I also have not had a better night’s sleep (and a month’s worth!) in years–I felt like I did before the onset of menopause.”
“The Spring Challenge was a fun learning experience. I was able to try some new foods that I have not eaten before. The recipes were great…and the shopping list was excellent! What a time saver!! I would definitely do the Challenge again…everyone should. You don’t know the good foods that you are missing. I loved, I laughed, I ate more Whole Foods:)”
“Following the challenge, helps to increase your NATURAL intake of micronutrients which is much better than supplementing. Your body not only feels better but functions better because of the food being in a natural state, your body knows how to use it!”
“I have lost six pounds and feel great!”
” I did want to tell you and Kath how great I thought this program was–seems like I have been looking for just this for years! The daily tips were great, the menus and shopping list, the facebook chat, everything. I’ve shared how great it has been with many friends, and I hope you run it again for their benefit.”
“This is so beautiful! I am amazed at all of the work you and Kathy have put into this program. The booklets, recipes, exercise days are all so very much appreciated. Thank you for making this not only healthy but fun!”
