Basics to be known about “Food for Good” Challenge
Food defines the human experience. our relationships with food combine to shape our bodies, our minds, our communities, and the world we call home. Food is the ultimate equalizer.
Yet increasingly over recent decades, food systems have become machines of extraction that reduce our well-being, weaken communities, and impoverish the world around us. Store aisles are filled with arsenals of cheap, addictive products that attack the soul through the hollowness of manufactured consumption. Even street Vendors peddle what has become a legalized weapon of mass destruction. Parents wage a daily battle to nourish and nurture their children, while supply chains funnel massive profits to corporations and billionaires.
In 2021, the Hult Prize returns to the roots of the human experience – food. We are challenging participants to transform food from a necessity for survival into a vehicle of change and prosperity for humanity.
This is also not a challenge for the exploitation of agricultural workers. This is a challenge about food and the human experience. This challenge is about our own life, our own family, and the possibility of turning a looming crisis into opportunity.
In 2021 the Hult Prize aims to impact the lives of 10M people in the next decade while strengthening communities, increasing incomes, feeding the hungry, and creating jobs.
