Berkeley a big part of new UC initiative on global food needs
By the UC Berkeley Public Affairs team
The University of California is launching an initiative to marshal resources across the UC campuses — including Berkeley’s 90 courses, 150 faculty and staff and multiple institutes and centers devoted to the study of agriculture and food — to address global challenges related to food.
UC President Janet Napolitano announced the initiative today (July 1) at a press conference with restaurateur and sustainable food leader Alice Waters, among others, at the Edible Schoolyard at King Middle School in Berkeley.
