What is Food Better?

A better food system starts with you. At Harvard, we call that focus on the food system and how to improve it – how to grow better, eat better, shop better, dispose better – Food Better. Throughout the year, FoodBetter partners engage in community-wide dialogue about how we can Food Better, which includes events, field trips and more. Food Better focuses on:

  • Producing Sustainable, Nutritious Food
  • Innovating in Food Distribution and Markets
  • Improving Our Diet
  • Reducing Food Waste
  • Climate Change and the Food System
  • We invite everyone in our Harvard community to participate in Food Better by attending and hosting events and activities.
