Feed The Planet

Help shape a more equitable, sustainable future. Feed the Planet projects inspire sustainable food consumption among communities and culinary professionals through education, professional development, and awareness. Founded by Worldchefs, Feed the Planet is run in partnership with Electrolux Food Foundation and AIESEC.
