  • Short Description
Mangos from India, pasta from Italy, coffee from Columbia:every day, we are nourished by a global food system that relies on our planet remaining verdant and productive. In Nourished Planet, the Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition offers a global plan for feeding ourselves sustainably.

Current food practices are undermining both human and environmental health, resulting in the paradoxes of obesity paired with malnutrition, crops used for animal feed and biofuels while people go hungry, and more than thirty percent of food being wasted when it could feed the 795 million malnourished worldwide. In Nourished Planet, the Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition offers a global plan for feeding ourselves sustainably. Drawing on the diverse experiences of renowned international experts, the book offers a truly planetary perspective. Together, these experts plot a map towards food for all, food for sustainable growth, food for health, and food for culture. With these ingredients, we can nourish our planet and ourselves.

The Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition Foundation (BCFN Foundation) is a private nonprofit think tank, analyzing the effects of economic, scientific, social, and environmental factors on food. The foundation produces valuable scientific content that can help people make conscious choices every day about food and nutrition, health, and sustainability.

In 2013, Danielle Nierenberg co-founded Food Tank, a nonprofit organization focused on building a global community for safe, healthy, nourished eaters. Food Tank is a global convener, research organization, and non-biased creator of original research impacting the food system.
