The first-ever UN Food Systems Summit took place in September 2021. This Summit gathered everyone across the food system – from farmers to food producers, policymakers to private sector players – to discuss, debate, and dream together about how we build equitable, inclusive, resilient food systems.
Ahead of the Summit, The Global FoodBanking Network hosted a special conversation between the UN’s Special Envoy to the Food Systems Summit, Dr. Agnes Kalibata, and UN Food Systems Summit Champion, Catherine Bertini. They discussed why this is a unique moment to rethink our food systems and how this process can only be successful if it includes the voices of all people.
