Why Thought For Food?

There is untapped next generation potential that will provide the insights and solutions to feed a growing world.

  • Every day one billion people go to bed hungry; even more are malnourished. At the same time, on the same planet, one billion people wake up fat and overfed. This perverse imbalance has dire consequences for our already strained healthcare systems and dwindling natural resources.

  • With the world population poised to increase to 9+ billion by 2050, we urgently need new solutions to ensure everyone in the world has access to adequate, safe, and nutritious food.

  • Thought for Food was created with the realization that the issue of food security is too big for any one person, institution, or organization to handle.

  • It takes the creativity of the leaders of tomorrow and the experience of established change-makers to join forces in exciting new ways to uproot the status quo and forge a better future for 9+ billion people.
