The Mission

Every day, food offers us the opportunity to engage with the world around us. By gathering people around shared food, shared work, and shared inquiry, the Yale Sustainable Food Project fosters a culture that draws meaning and pleasure from the connections among people, land, and food.

The world’s most pressing questions regarding health, culture, the environment, education, and the global economy cannot be adequately addressed without considering the food we eat and how it is produced. By creating opportunities for Yale students to experience food, agriculture, and sustainability as an integral part of their education and everyday life at Yale, the Sustainable Food Project aims to inspire a new generation of leaders and citizens to be active stewards of the world’s future.
