This panel explores how future-thinking schools and providers like Sodexo are moving food production on-campus with innovative agtech. These programs satisfy important logistical criteria – consistent year-round volume, nutrition, traceability, menu creativity – and interactive curricula for a student generation looking to change the food system.
