About #FoodHackathon


fbslogoNUTRITION FOR ALL: The Food Hackathon + Forum brings together leading food innovators, entrepreneurs, and scholars with top tech talent and emerging food leaders, to collaborate on innovative solutions to grand challenges in our food system. Presented in partnership with The Food Business School—the newly established center for executive and graduate education at The Culinary Institute of America—this third iteration of this event centers on the call to action “Nutrition for All.”

THE CHALLENGE & THE PRIZE: Event partners have collaborated with Challenge Sponsors and UC Davis / Mars Innovation Institute for Food and Health, to identify a Challenge central to the event theme “Nutrition for All.” Working in interdisciplinary teams, the hackers will spend two days developing solutions to these challenges with the support of experienced food and tech mentors—and fueled by the powers of Rebecca Jean Catering).

Winning hacks will be selected by a panel of expert judges at a final presentation on Sunday. The grand prize includes an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2015 World Expo in Milan, Italy.
