Catalyst 300 – Food

Challenge: Food for All

Despite producing enough food to feed the world, global population faces hunger and food insecurity. Lack of good foods has negative outcomes on individual and community health. Some regions report high rates of malnutrition associated with health issues and death. In other regions, chronic food-related illnesses lower overall quality of life and further reproduce social inequalities. This challenge addresses availability of, access to, and control over stable, safe, healthy, high quality, and desirable food year long.
