About Us


RECIPES is a research network bringing together over 40 researchers and 15 institutions connected with organizations working across the food system to advance the science needed to make our wasteful food system sustainable, equitable, and resilient. Launched on October 1, 2021, the first five years of our work is supported through NSF grant 2115405
