The Food & Society Policy Fellows program named nine new Fellows with backgrounds in farming, public health, film making and policy research to promote strategies for achieving a more sustainable, healthy and equitable food system.
The Food & Society Policy Fellows program was jointly launched in 2001 by the Jefferson Institute and the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP), with support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The program is designed to facilitate the Fellows use of mass media channels to inform and shape the public agenda for food. Together, they will work to affect local, regional and national policy through strategic communication efforts.
