Envision a future where all children across the United States have equitable access to affordable, nutrient-rich, culturally-acceptable, and environmentally-friendly foods. What steps should be taken today to achieve this goal? And what role can the U.S. dairy community play in helping transform this vision into reality? Are there lessons and best practices, from years of investment and innovation, that the U.S. dairy community can share domestically and with others around the world to support the food systems transformation?
This Food Systems Summit Dialogue (FSSD), convened by organizations united in their commitment to advancing sustainable food systems and improving the health and wellbeing of children, will explore how society can better nourish future generations in more sustainable ways. This conversation will focus on:
- Better ensuring food security and nutrition for children through sustainable and universal school meal programs
- Identifying ways to advance environmentally responsible food production, including efforts that can achieve carbon neutrality, enhance stewardship and more
- Exploring U.S. dairy’s role in advancing sustainable food systems, through commitments to environmental stewardship and carbon neutrality, child nutrition and social/community impact
The FSSD will include:
- Keynote speakers and interactive, breakout discussions with stakeholders from various sectors across the food system, including experts and advocates for child nutrition, researchers, representatives from governmental, non-governmental and private sector organizations, dairy farmers, academics, and more
- Interdisciplinary conversation about the intersections of child health and sustainable food production and the pathways to improve both
