Description

As part of the UW Public Health Nutritional Sciences winter seminar series -- Aligning Food Systems with Nutrition and Health -- SCTL Center Director Anne Goodchild will speak on how supply chain transportation and logistics shapes food access and security. 

All UW students, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend. 

Seminar Description:

The challenge of feeding nine billion people in year 2050 is not just about producing sufficient calories. It is about making sure that food systems produce sufficient nutrient-rich foods that are affordable, accessible, culturally appropriate, have low impact on the environment, and have positive impact on health and nutrition outcomes. The current problem, as aptly quoted in the 2017 IFPRI Global Nutrition Report, is that “millions of people have too much of the wrong food, while millions more have too little of the right food”.  Almost every country in the world is facing a malnutrition challenge, in the form of undernutrition, overnutrition, or both.

Building connections between the key components of food systems — nutrition-sensitive agriculture, food production and processing, consumption patterns, nutrition status and population health — is the main theme of this seminar series. This series will bring together leading experts from public and private sectors to address these challenging issues at both global and local levels.
