SuperChefs Against Superbugs

Staff Writer | Pew | October 16, 2013

SuperChefs Against Superbugs is a movement of chefs from across the country who want to stop the overuse of antibiotics on industrial farms.

Recognizing the connection between this practice and the growing crisis of antibiotic resistance in people, these chefs are committed to speaking out for a more sustainable food system that uses antibiotics responsibly.

Started in 2012 when Pew partnered with the James Beard Foundation for the first Chefs Boot Camp for Policy & Change, SuperChefs Against Superbugs has grown to an active group of nearly 1,000 chefs advocating for policies to protect the public from antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
