october 16 is world food day. consider that globally it is women who bear the greatest responsibility for food production. women produce more than half of all food worldwide, accounting for 43 percent of the global agricultural labour force.   

yet the united nations estimates that globally women own only 15 percent of the land. in india, for example, where women account for 87 percent of the agricultural producers, they own only 10 percent of the land; while in mali, women comprise about 70 percent of agricultural workers, but own only 3 percent of the land. the same numbers hold true for pakistan as well. 

without land ownership, women are unable to secure loans needed to reinvest back into their land. yet if they were given the same resources as men, these women could increase their productivity by 30 precent, thus feeding an additional 150 million people in need.

The benefits of ugly carrots and failed lemons


Would you eat a “hideous orange” or a “ridiculous potato”?  The produce above may look odd, but tastes just the same. Grocery stores commonly throw away anywhere from 20-40% of their fruits and vegetables simply because of the way they look.

This is just one of the steps in the “farm to fork” process where food is unnecessarily thrown away. In fact the United States wastes almost 40% of food to landfill. If we were to plant trees on the land used for this food waste we would be able to offset over 50% of human-made greenhouse gas emissions.  

The Berkeley Food Institute is trying to find ways for us to reduce our food waste. Today they will hold a forum with students, businesses and organizations to find better solutions to this problem.
