Ambition Nutrition 2021

Food Literacy: Bridging the gap between Nutritional Sciences and the Culinary Arts

Wednesday, May 12, to Friday, May 14, 2021

Ambition Nutrition 2021 is a three-day online symposium focusing on Food Literacy in theory and practice, examining the gaps and opportunities between Food literacy, Food Policy, Public Health, Community Food Programs, and Food Insecurity. The vision behind the event is “to invest in a future of health by bridging the gap between research, education, diet and the culinary arts.”

Foundations for health include:

  • Food and Nutrition Knowledge
  • Self-Efficacy and Competence in food choice, food preparation and food safety
  • Awareness of other impacts including social, cultural, and economic factors

The conference will feature engaging speakers, researchers, and chefs who are experts in various community settings: online, at schools, and in the government. Ambition Nutrition 2021 will conclude with a grand finale of cooking classes focused on Global Cuisine and Plant-Forward Menus.
