Looking to finish your education and enter a well paying, interesting career that can help make the world a better place? The career you’re looking for is ready for you – in food and agriculture!

The UN estimates that by the year 2050, the population of the earth will reach at least 9.5 billion, an increase of almost 2.5 billion people in 35 years. More people will demand better and easier access to food, while climate change may actually take away some of the land we need to grow it. That’s a problem, but you can be a part of the solution.

To feed the future, we need people like you - people willing to stand up and change the world. Without more young professionals entering the food and agriculture workforce, millions will go undernourished, or worse, without food at all. We will be unable to sustainably feed everyone. We need you to do your part by entering one of many amazing careers.

Explore this website and see others that were once like you – trying to find a way to make a difference in the world and have a career they enjoy at the same time. You’ll see other college students, professionals and professors who stood up to the challenges of the future. Learn more about your career choices post-graduation.

Employers are looking for people like you! You could be a soil scientist, an agronomist, a food scientist or an animal breeder, and those are just a few of the many great careers to choose from! Join the movement to create a sustainable food and agriculture system. Together we can feednourish and create a thriving future, for everyone.

“See what others are doing to feed, nourish and create a thriving future!”
