More than 500 organic stakeholders will feast on an all organic dinner created by a celebrity chef, listen to a thought-provoking discussion of food politics from a nationally respected sustainable food advocate, hear updates on the latest organic research, participate in science-focused social media festivities, and, for good measure, let loose at an after-dinner bash with a rhythm and blues band at The Organic Center‘s Annual VIP Dinner March 5, 2015, in Anaheim, California.

One of the largest organic business networking events of the year, the theme of this year’s dinner is “Where Science Meets Soul.” Attendees will celebrate The Center’s work to bring to the public eye the scientific findings behind organic food and farming and will learn about current research developments in the organic sector. The annual fundraiser, held in conjunction with Natural Products Expo West, raised more than $500,000 last year for the work of the group.

Designing the menu will be Chef Susan Feniger (pictured), a 30-year restaurant industry veteran, chef and cookbook author. Feniger is cofounder of the successful Mexican-inspired Border Grill family of restaurants in Los Angeles. She is one of the original Food Network stars, most recently appearing on Season 2 of Bravo’s “Top Chef Masters.” She has collaborated on a half dozen cookbooks, including her latest, Street Food.

The keynote speaker at the dinner will be Anna Lappé, author of three books, including the national bestseller Diet for a Hot Planet: The Climate Crisis at the End of Your Fork and What You Can Do About It, which links the current conventional food system to global warming. Lappé and her mother Frances Moore Lappé lead the Cambridge-based Small Planet Institute.

Tickets for the dinner are available online.

The Organic Center’s mission is to convene credible, evidence-based science on the health and environmental benefits of organic food and farming, and to communicate the findings to the public. As an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) research and education organization operating under the administrative auspices of the Organic Trade Association, The Center envisions health for the environment and people through the conversion of agriculture to organic methods.
