Given current trends in food production and consumption, we will be unable to adequately feed the world’s estimated 10 billion people without modifications to our current food system. Attendees will be provided with background on the food issues facing our growing and changing population, how the world’s most vulnerable populations will be affected, and potential solutions. Panelists will discuss the topic and its interconnections with policy, sustainability, food security, equity, and technology. We will reserve 30 minutes at the end for questions from the audience.


Panelists include:

  • John Gershman (moderator), Clinical Professor of Public Service, NYU Wagner
  • Yvette Cabrera, Deputy Director, Food Waste, The Natural Resources Defense Council
  • Paul Skoczylas, Deputy Director, Division for the UN System and Multilateral Engagement, World Food Programme, United Nations
  • Pamela Koch, Executive Director, Laurie M. Tisch Center for Food, Education & Policy, Program in Nutrition, Teachers College, Columbia University
