“We are a professional science-based non-profit organization advocating to establish a national sustainable food system and food security for all Israelis now and in the future”

Globalization, coupled with climate change, is poised to increase the burden on the global and Israeli food systems.
How can we meet these challenges now and in the future? How can we provide personal and national food security? What is the role that each sector must play in order to provide a healthy and sustainable food environment?
