What We Do

The Israeli Forum for Sustainable Nutrition was created in response to two pressing and interdependent challenges facing our society– food security and environmental sustainability. We are a professional science-based organization advocating to establish a national sustainable food system and food security for all Israelis now and in the future. We lead research, convene partners, advocate for policy change, and educate the public on the nexus between nutrition, health, and sustainability. 

The Challenge

Israeli society faces a paradox of growing obesity and food insecurity, largely a result of an unhealthy and unequitable food environment. Despite the need for increased access to healthy food, the Israeli agricultural sector is collapsing and about a third of all food produced is wasted. Globalization, coupled with the impacts climate change, is poised to increase the burden on the global and Israeli food systems. These interdisciplinary and interdependent challenges require bold action and partnership between all sectors of society in order to provide a healthy and sustainable food environment.
