Alice Waters is a chef, author, food activist, and the founder and owner of Chez Panisse Restaurant in Berkeley, California. She has promoted local sustainable agriculture for over four decades, and in 1995 she founded The Edible Schoolyard Project, which promotes free school lunches and sustainable food curriculum in public schools. She is a leader in the slow food movement, and was awarded the National Humanities Medal by President Obama in 2015. She is the author of many books, including The Art of Simple Food I & II and The Edible Schoolyard: A Universal Idea. Her memoir is entitled Coming to My Senses.

Robert Scheer is editor-in-chief of the online magazine Truthdig, for which he also writes a column that is syndicated in The Huffington Post and The Nation. Scheer, with help from Alice Waters, ran for the U.S. House of Representatives as one of the only anti-Vietnam war candidates in the country. As a journalist he has interviewed every president from Richard Nixon through Bill Clinton, and worked at the Los Angeles Times from 1976 until 2005. Scheer’s latest book, They Know Everything About You: How Data-Collecting Corporations and Snooping Government Agencies Are Destroying Democracy, was released in 2015.
