Global food security means that people everywhere have access to enough safe, nutritious food to eat every day. But it’s not a reality. And with 9 billion of us projected to live on the planet by 2050, feeding the world tomorrow won’t be possible unless we all start working together today. That’s why Land O’Lakes, Inc. is introducing Cultivate Community With the Global Food Challenge. It’s a new food security-focused competition open to college students in the United States who want to help devise solutions to the problem of food insecurity.

A'ysha Callahan is from Waukegan, Illinois, and she is studying food science at Alabama A&M University. She grew up in a relatively urban area, so wasn’t exposed directly to agriculture – this prompted her to start asking questions about how the food we eat is produced. Through high school she volunteered at soup kitchens and food banks, which exposed her to how prevalent food insecurity is in U.S. communities. These experiences intensified her interest in agriculture and helped her grow a passion for finding a solution to feed the world.
