The World Food Center at UC Davis aims to generate transformative knowledge and practical solutions to feed and nourish people locally and globally for decades to come. As the pre-eminent institution connecting visionary research and teaching with innovators, philanthropists, industry, and public and social leaders, we will drive economic, health, social, and environmental innovations in the world’s food system.

With renewed interest in how our food is produced and its impact on our health, along with growing global food demand, the World Food Center will build collaborations across the public and private sectors in California and globally to impact policy and production. By convening leading thinkers and implementers, the Center will enhance research capacities to tackle larger scale problems and increase the impact of research through translation to policy and practice.
