Feeding the growing population while eliminating negative social, economic, and environmental consequences is a critical challenge facing the world today. It is also an opportunity to create a more sustainable, equitable global food and agriculture system through collaboration, innovation, and leadership. The MIT Food and Agriculture Club (FAC) brings together students — and other MIT community members — to coordinate and support work in the areas of food and agriculture.
Beyond advocating for and supporting the development of a more sustainable food system on campus, the FAC also works to enhance MIT’s role in contributing to global agricultural innovation and sustainability. Specifically, they seek to increase the MIT community’s awareness of, and participation in, food and agriculture related events, incorporate food and agricultural sustainability and innovation into programming and coursework, and promote collaboration between students, faculty, and food and agriculture industry practitioners.
