The general manager of Northwest Philadelphia’s Weavers Way Coop, Glenn Bergman, will be participating in a panel on Thursday that will discuss animal welfare and corporations. 

The panel will also feature food entrepreneur and owner of the White Dog Cafe, Judy Wicks, and Josh Balk, food policy director of the Humane Society of the United States. The discussion will be moderated by Nadia Adawi, a Philadelphia attorney who specializes in animal law.

The panel will focus on the treatment of animals that are raised for meat. 

“It’s important for people to understand where their food comes from and how it got to their plates. How food animals are treated is one part of that story,” Bergman said

The panel is part of the Animal Law Conference and is being held at the Wanamaker Building in Germantown.
