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.

Bailee, from Walkerton, Indiana, is studying agribusiness and agronomy in the College of Agriculture. She grew up on a family farm with a variety of animals, including goats, chickens and horses, and is excited to explore agriculture and food security abroad. Food security and sustainability are not areas that many agriculture students get the opportunity to explore. She hopes this tangible experience through the Global Food Challenge will open her eyes to the opportunities in this sector of agriculture so she can make a difference with her career.
