Current Research Theme: Feeding a Hungry World: Food Security in the 21st Century


Food and Food Security issues will be the research focus of the GRI in academic years 2015-16 and 2016-17.  In addition, UNC Chapel Hill will also focus on food with a pan-university theme “Food for All: Local and Global Perspectives.”

Through seminars, workshops and other networking opportunities, GRI Food Research Clusters, together with the pan-university Food Theme Committee and the broader UNC-Chapel Hill “food community,” will work to develop a better understanding of the critical global challenges of Feeding a Hungry World.
