Food Systems and Sustainability Program

The Food Systems Program at the Institute of Food, Nutrition, and Health, creates opportunities for collaboration, education, and investigation of food systems from production to customer to waste disposal. By taking a systems approach, we seek to determine the linkages between different elements of the food system and we ask how these linkages can be changed to make food systems more sustainable and healthier for people and the planet.

Recent activities included the Student Food Sustainability Fair on World Food Day, October 17, 2018.
