In the United States, 35 million people are hungry or don’t know where their next meal is coming from. At least 13 million of these are children. Worldwide, this number grows to 842 million. As the population continues to grow, the grand challenge, both scientifically and ethically, is to provide sufficient food and nutrition for all, while protecting our natural resources — the foundation for our food advances.
A major step forward in addressing food security is what the GFSC does — bringing together diverse researchers, students, faculty, and industry personnel from multiple locations and disciplines to address a common goal. No single person, entity or institution is going to be able to solve this problem alone. We must work together to discover ways to overcome these challenges and connect the research with people who can implement and scale it. We believe GFSC and its partners are able to make such a contribution.
