Welcome to the Center for Food Systems and Sustainability (CENFOODS) at the University of Delaware. Our overarching aim is to position UD as an emergent leader in sustainable food production. The goals of CENFOODS are to coordinate, integrate and enhance UD’s research, teaching and outreach efforts on the sustainability of food production and surrounding ecosystems.
The ability to sustainably produce healthy and safe food for a growing population is one of the most urgent issues facing the world today. Moreover, as the population increases, there will be more strain on the built environment and without careful planning will result in increased pollution of critical resources including soil, water, and food. The development of solutions to this complex issue requires an approach that transcends traditional disciplines. CENFOODS serves as the nexus for an integrated and coordinated research, education, and extension program.
