GFI CALL 2023/2024 - Will open in September 2023!

Apply for a UC Global Food Initiative Student Fellowship


The deadline to apply is XXX

In support of the University of California’s Global Food Initiative, which commits the UC to develop and promote sustainable and nutritional food systems to meet an ever-increasing global population, the UCR Global Food Committee is soliciting applications for the 2021-2022 Global Food Fellowship.








The “hunger free 2050” post conference activities and public panel series were led by UCR students to educate, engage and empower them civically, on and off campus, to bring attention to complex and important issues to resolve to achieve food global security and environmental sustainability, i.e. - the need to reframe the question on how we are going to feed the 9.5 billion people sustainably, and the need for an all-encompassing interdisciplinary analysis to bring a more realistic and sustainable solution.

Feeding a Hungry Planet: Agriculture, Nutrition and Sustainability

How do we create a healthy and sustainable diet for the growing world population?

Agriculture is more than waving fields of wheat; our ability to grow food from existing natural resources – and without decimating those resources – is key to sustainably feeding the world. In this course, learn about food security worldwide, the effects of malnutrition, how we manage ecosystems that provide food resources and more. You’ll emerge from this course with a clear answer to the question: What can I do to make food consumption and production more sustainable?

Interested in this course? If you are a CAFE intern or you are a student at UCR CAFE will cover the cost of this online class.
