Let's Move! Executive Director Sam Kass will make a repeat appearance at the James Beard Foundation's annual Food Conference next October in New York City, the organization has announced.  Kass spoke at last year's conference, discussing child obesity and school lunch issues.  This year's conference is titled The Paradox of Appetite:  Hungering for Change.
The conference will be on Oct. 21 and 22.  Registration is now open and costs $500 for individuals.  The event includes the foundation's Sustainable Leadership awards.

Kass also spoke at the foundation's inaugural sustainable food conference in 2011, which was held in Washington, DC, and closed to the public.
