From April 15 to June 10, 2017, the first round of Good Food Roadshow, 26 Good Food educational workshops, more than 1,000 offline participants, nearly 90,000 live online audience.
For us passengers, what do these numbers mean? They are countless caring farmers, educators, entrepreneurs, promoters and ones who enlighten us and put Good Food into practice; they are inspired participants who start to really think about the real cost behind food and choose to live a sustainable lifestyle; they are all the selfless volunteers who contribute unreservedly to each workshop. There were endless interesting, touching stories. Let me first share some of the behind-the-scene foodtages here :)
