The Future of Food - Food Prints Made from Farm to Fork
Presented by: Debbie Petitpain, MS, RDN, LD

Webinar Summary: The demand on the earth’s resources is exceeding what it can provide. Moving into the next century, population growth and unprecedented changes in the climate will directly impact the global food supply – less drinking water, higher priced food and changes to food security are just some examples of how. Dietitians are poised to serve as subject matter experts on which foods tax resources the least, what consumption patterns are the most sustainable and where the greatest opportunities for change along the food supply change exist. Dietitians are ready to be part of the global conversation on the future of food!


  • Define food print and sustainable diet as used in the global conversation about the future of food
  • Describe current and predicted changes in worldwide consumption patterns, and that effect on the future food supply
  • List points of impact in the food supply chain where dietitians can assist in changing the global “food print”
