The modern field of food systems and agriculture is being revolutionized by new technological advances. However, our current food systems are inadequate to feed and nourish the ever-increasing population and do not provide healthy, affordable food for all. We would like to explore the food that we consume, such as where the food comes from and the challenges throughout the supply chain from farm to table. We aim to tackle problems with the current food systems, which includes food insecurity, food waste, malnutrition, unhealthy diets, food safety, efficiency of distribution channels, and long-term sustainability of food systems. Our mission is to raise awareness in our school and local communities about food related challenges, to promote food waste reduction, alleviate hunger, promote healthy diets, well-balanced nutrition, and food safety, and explore techniques to improve food system efficiency and sustainability.
Founded by high school students from various states across the US, we are a vibrant and welcoming community that campaigns to solve food systems related challenges. As a diverse group with members coming from many backgrounds, we welcome members with varying interests to contribute to this cause, as we take both humanities and STEM approaches to further our mission.
We have expanded our organization branches to 5 states in the US, with each branch led by a local team carrying out a unique approach that best addresses food system challenges in its local community.
