As someone in the sustainable food industry, I often find myself searching for studies, data, and other research to inform my work. The Food Tank has just made life easier for me (and you!) by bringing together resources related to food and sustainability in one place. Launched on Friday, the Food Tank hopes to change the world by spotlighting innovations that are working that you probably have not heard of, working to change the metrics that food sustainability is judged on, and bridging the gap between domestic and global food issues.
The Food Tank was founded by two veterans in the industry, Danielle Nierenberg, a Tufts Agriculture, Food, and Environment alum who worked for WorldWatch Institute studying food and agriculture issues, and Ellen Gustafson, founder of the 30 Project and co-founder of FEED Project (those burlap bags you buy at Whole Foods that donate meals to the hungry).
Whether you're looking for data or tips, Food Tank wants to be your go-to website. Check it out here, including their 13 food resolutions for 2013.
