Resilience from farm to plate

The COVID-19 pandemic revealed vulnerabilities in our food system. Find out how health care workers can take action to ensure our food system is resilient in the face of future crises.

Hear from hospital food and sustainable agriculture experts on how resiliency strategies:

  • combat climate change while protecting food security.
  • sequesters carbon while making our farms more resilient.
  • prevents food waste and are good for people, the planet, and the economy.

Session details

The COVID-19 pandemic revealed vulnerabilities in our food system: supply for some products is strained and food access for our most vulnerable populations is threatened. The health care sector can take measures to ensure our food system is resilient in the face of future crises.

Regenerative agriculture builds healthy soil while sequestering carbon from the atmosphere, responding to climate change and the soil fertility crisis. Sutter Health’s food waste prevention and rescue pilot program directs excess food to people who need it while diverting food from landfills where its decomposition contributes to climate change.

Session participants will leave with actionable steps for building resilience and protecting food security in their own communities.
