Showcasing the innovative food-systems research being conducted around MIT.

October 16th marks World Food Day, an annual reminder of the importance of food security around the world. To celebrate World Food Day 2020, J-WAFS launched its first video competition for MIT undergraduates, graduate students, post-docs, and recent graduates. These videos showcase the exciting research being conducted across a variety of MIT departments and programs aimed at finding solutions to global food systems challenges.

The prize-winning videos were reviewed by a distinguished group of judges including food systems experts representing different sectors, science communications professionals from within and outside MIT, and additional MIT colleagues.
