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.

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.
