Barber has written on many food and agricultural policies, which have appeared in the New York Times, Gourmet, The Nation, Saveur, and Food & Wine. His writings pertain to creating a consciousness about the effects of everyday food choices and food sustainability.

In February 2010, Barber gave a talk at the TED Conference where he outlined his discovery of extensively farmed fish at Veta La Palma.
Barber often wears pajama pants and waffled long-sleeve shirts in the kitchen. Barber was appointed by President Obama to serve on the President’s Council on Physical Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition and is also a member of the Advisory Board to the Harvard Medical School Center for Health and The Global Environment.
