Supported by a $5 million grant from the Kansas Department of Commerce, Kansas State University unveiled the Global Food Systems initiative this fall, which involves sectors such as research, government, academics and industry.

The initiative addresses the challenges of food production to meet the demands of a growing global population, which the United Nations expects to reach 9 billion by 2050. K-State President Kirk Schulz said Global Food Systems will require a collaborative effort among faculty, staff and students in multiple colleges across campus, and will be an initiative that will help the university accomplish its goals for K-State 2025, the university's vision to become a Top 50 public research university by 2025.
