Bold Solutions: UC Global Food Initiative

They say:
you are what you eat. And what you eat is everything that happens
before that food hits your fork.
Food is nutrition and taste. But it’s also economics and policy.
“We’re in kind of an extraordinary moment of rising expectations around economic inequality.”
Food is climate systems and water. Collaboration and cultivation in unexpected
places. “This is salad for 50 people.”
“That’s great! Wow!” Healthy schools and communities.
“You cannot delink academic achievement with good nutrition.”
Food is technology and safe delivery from farms to people around the world.
New hope for a growing, global population. The University of California’s Global Food
Initiative’s goal is audacious and far-reaching. To lead the way for the world to feed itself
nutritiously and sustainably. “There are daunting numbers and there are
daunting challenges. And that’s where the University comes in.”
Bold solutions to big problems. With work as pioneering as California itself.
“If California can’t save the world, I don’t know who can.”
That’s work we can all chew on.
