Aligning the Food System to Meet Dietary Needs: Fruits and Vegetables

When: June 2-3, 2017
Where: University of California, Davis (USA)

In 2017, the UC Davis World Food Center organized a workshop on "Aligning the Food System to Meet Dietary Needs: Fruits and Vegetables." The event was hosted in collaboration with the Program in International and Community Nutrition and the Horticulture Innovation Lab.

The objective of this workshop was to provide recommendations for development strategies to improve the availability, affordability, and demand of fruits and vegetables. The workshop was divided into three sessions:

  1. Optimal Nutrition and the Consumption of Fruits and Vegetables
  2. Improving the Availability of Fruits and Vegetables
  3. Metrics to Evaluate and Improve Diet Quality

Welcome messages during the event were offered by Amy Beaudreault of the UC Davis World Food Center and Jan Hopmans of UC Davis College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.

Event organizers are also working on a white paper, which we will share on this webpage once it is complete.
