I participated in BCFN:YES! to work with a team researching and creating an innovative solution that can help improve food security and environmental sustainability locally and globally.

In Sustainable Diets and Biodiversity (2012), FAO nutrition expert Barbara Burlingame warns that despite the recent successes of agriculture, “food systems, and diets, are not sustainable” and “a shift toward more sustainable diets would trigger upstream effects on the food production (e.g. diversification), processing chain and food consumption (FAO and Biodiversity International 2012).” While information about sustainable diets is easily accessible in the United States it can be difficult to make sense of it all, with conflicting claims in advertisement and media, and what seems to be a situation of information overload.
GoodFood is a web-based application available for use on mobile devices that guides choices in the United States about healthy and environmentally sustainable food consumption. The time has come for Americans to re-assume democratic control over the nation’s food system and build networks of local communities promoting changes in the Western diet. GoodFood provides individuals with personalized, easily understandable and quickly accessible recommendations that can transform the model of food consumption in the U.S. with positive outcomes for health and environmental sustainability.
