Addressing Climate Change from Farm to Fork

General Mills announced on August 31 a commitment to reduce absolute greenhouse gas emissions by 28 percent across its full value chain – from farm to fork to landfill – over the next 10 years. The commitment was calculated using science-based methodology to achieve a level of emission reductions that science suggests is necessary to sustain the health of the planet.

Breaking Down Local and National Efforts to Improve Food Security in the U.S.
As of 2017, estimations indicate that 1 in 8 Americans suffer from food insecurity—some 40 million people, including 12 million children. That’s the bad news. The good news is that the population of food insecure people has declined in the United States. Food insecurity is off from its peak during the Great Recession of 2008 and continues to decline. Nonetheless, the decline hasn’t reached the pre-recession level, and work remains to address hunger and food security in America.
