UC Global Food Initiative

The University of California Global Food Initiative “addresses one of the critical issues of our time: how to sustainably and nutritiously feed a world population expected to reach eight billion by 2025. This UC-wide initiative aligns the university’s research, extension, outreach, and operations in a sustained effort to demonstrate and develop solutions for food security, health, and sustainability. UC President Janet Napolitano, together with UC’s 10 chancellors, launched the UC Global Food Initiative in July 2014.”

The Berkeley Food Institute convenes the UC Berkeley Global Food Initiative Working Group, and leads or actively participates in the following UC Global Food Initiative-supported projects.
