The GW Food Institute is home to faculty and student scholars engaged in research about all things related to food, from sustainable agriculture to the way diet and meals shape human society. Healthy communities depend on sustainable food systems that are resilient, diverse, fair, economically balanced, and transparent. Established in September 2015, the GW Food Institute brings together a wide range of scholars to focus collaboratively on:

  • The science and technology of food, health and nutrition
  • Food history and culture
  • Policy, law and justice
  • The business and economics of providing food
  • Food citizenship and leadership

Here you'll find select posts from the Food Institute Commentary page, a food forum by GW students, faculty, and staff.
