A portal to food systems research, teaching, outreach, and extension programs at UK
The mission of the Food Systems Initiative (FSI) is to be a catalyst for all aspects of food. As a cross-college group of faculty and staff, the FSI strengthens and creates University-level programs; provides leadership and coordination for various food-related scholarship at UK; promotes formal and informal education about food systems; and mobilizes resources to address food-related issues.
The Food Systems Initiative:
- Promotes food-related educational programs and events and seeks to raise awareness of and interest in food-related issues on campus
- Encourages research on food-related topics
- Provides opportunities for local, regional, and international engagement
- Fosters linkages among UK, the Commonwealth, and institutions and peoples who are actively engaged in food-related issues.
