How can policy innovation curb the trillions of dollars every year that the world loses on the hidden costs of the food system and put it on a more sustainable and resilient path?

Join us and the Keough School of Global Affairs at the University of Notre Dame, to hear inspiring findings from FSEC’s research on how policy innovation can pave the way towards an inclusive, health-enhancing, and environmentally sustainable food system.

A panel of experts will discuss how policy innovation can strengthen opportunities for people working in the food system, build resilience, ensure healthy diets and highlight stories of transformative solutions.
