We are excited to announce that the Seeding the Future Foundation, whose vision is "a global food system that always provides equitable access to safe, nutritious, affordable, appealing, and trusted food for everyone and improves the health of people and our planet by being sustainable, resilient, and regenerative", has provided funding for our students to tackle food systems sustainability. With concerns of climate change, social inequities, and increasing populations becoming ever more omnipresence in the conversation relating to food systems, there is an urgent need for impactful solutions. Led by the Food & Nutrition Innovation Institute at the Friedman School at Tufts University, this program aims to support the development of innovative solutions for a more equitable and sustainable food system by providing a cross-discipline group of students the relevant training and resources they need to propose new solutions.

During the fall semester, students will be selected from across the Friedman School divisions. These students will work to research and identify challenges, gaps, and areas of opportunity at varying levels of the food system. The team will receive human-centered design training, access to mentors and networking, as well as time and space to develop ideas. Students will push boundaries, receive professional insight, and propose real solutions. By the end of the semester, Friedman students will narrow down their focus areas and present their work to faculty, industry leaders, and Tufts Engineering students.
