This year, we’re celebrating an important milestone. To mark 40 issues of Foodism, we’re launching Foodism 40, an event that toasts the changemakers who are committed to bettering our industry. Supporting the local community has been a cornerstone of Foodism’s mission over the past eight years, and now it’s time to put the spotlight on those pushing it forward.
