Our Team

Our Mission

Team Foodisclosure cares deeply about raising the appraisal of surplus food, increasing the efficacy of nutrition and food systems education, and spurring economic development in innovative ways. We hope to address the discrepancies of knowledge and resources in our global food system. "Better is possible. It does not take genius. It takes diligence. It takes moral clarity. It takes ingenuity. And above all, it takes a willingness to try." Atul Gawande

Our Background

Emily Sin researches the sustainability of raw agricultural material sourcing for the University of California, Davis. She cares about the distribution of food and the supply chains that govern access to it on a global scale, employing geographic information systems to better understand the nature of food discrepancies in the developed and developing worlds. In participating in the 2013 Thought For Food Challenge, she hopes to build a product or application that will aid in bridging the gap between the “haves” and “have-nots” of the worldwide food supply. Lorena Galvan is committed to increasing the quality of health care and education around the world. The 2013 Thought for Food Challenge provides an ideal opportunity for her to work with a creative team to provide appropriate education of food production, international consumption and nutrition through the use of self sustaining resources to ensure affordable nutritional food is secure for nine billion people by 2050. Edward Silva is interested in the nexus between agriculture and food, and the efforts aimed towards reaching a level worth sustaining. He envisions a world where food is a secure asset for people, which will impact other factors that can lead to better lives. The complex social, economic, scientific, and logistical challenges that come with creating food security is an area he believes can truly benefit from innovative, interdisciplinary approaches that are not afraid to bring together novel and antiques ideas in a way that serves to catalyze progress towards making more secure what is a growing global hunger. We believe our team, and the international, scientific, social, educational, and economic backgrounds and experiences we collectively bring, grant us the tools to develop well-rounded solutions to food insecurity, and build the proper networks and mentors to help us achieve it. We are participating in this challenge because we believe it will give us the opportunity to think through complex ideas, develop potential solutions, and ultimately help build a community of diverse, knowledgeable students who will grow into professionals who are conscious of food security long beyond the deadlines of this challenge. We want to build a tool, resource, and/or greater opportunity that aims to raise the appraisal of food and in turn secure greater access to it.
