Food and Nutrition Policy Symposium Series

The Food and Nutrition Policy Symposium Series brings leading experts to Stanford to share new research in an integrated, ten-lecture series on global food and nutrition policy. The series follows on the success of the two-year Global Food Policy and Food Security Symposium Series that concluded in May 2013. Participants address food security topics ranging from aquaculture, to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, to crop genetics and protecting the global food supply from the future impacts of climate change. We thank Zach Nelson and Elizabeth Horn for their generous support of the symposium series, in honor of Phillip Falcon.
