Food systems, meaning anything from fertilizer use to grain transport, makes up an estimated one-third of global human greenhouse-gas emissions. We are people who eat food, and we bet you are, too! With that in mind, we believe that everyone has a role to play in reducing the carbon footprint of the systems that produce (and consume) our food.
The work of the MN350 Food Systems Team is informed by the science of Project Drawdown, and we strive for solutions that are both scientifically sound and socially just. We currently focus on three strategies to help reach a carbon-neutral Minnesota by 2030:
The Food Systems Team meets from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on alternating Thursdays at the MN350 office in Minneapolis. We share updates on current activities and issues, ask questions, make suggestions, and break out to smaller groups to focus on specific action items. For specific dates, check out the Events Calendar.
