In the United States, several public health investments target minimally processed foods and consumer education promoting increased fruit, vegetable, and whole food consumption. And while laudable and necessary, there has been limited focus on linking sustainable and resilient agriculture, consumer preferences and health.
To begin shifting aspects of our modern agricultural system to producing more nutritious foods that meet the demands of consumers and food companies, we held the Harvest for Health convening to uncover opportunities for audacious research that could lead to effective and evidence-based solutions to incorporating underutilized crops into the food system.
The goals of the event were to identify research gaps where our support would have the greatest impact and lead to the use of healthy and resilient underutilized crops as food ingredients, and explore partnerships that would strengthen links between resilient production agriculture, food and health as part of the Harvest for Health initiative.
