Sustainable Food

Resources for understanding issues facing the world's food supply

As the world’s population grows, what can be done to sustain the farmland, energy and water supplies needed to keep everyone fed? How can we address the fact that as much as 50 percent of food produced by farms goes to waste? Can we prevent food-borne illnesses that continue to threaten the global food supply? These are just some of the challenging questions facing a world whose population is expected to swell beyond 10 billion people later this century.
