GENYOUth National Survey Finds American Teens Care About Food and the Environment but Don’t Understand How They are Connected
“Youth & the Future of Food” Study Reveals That Youth Want to Learn More from Farmers and Food Industry About Where Their Food Comes From
NEW YORK (May 13, 2020) – GENYOUth, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to creating healthier school communities, released today the results of Youth & the Future of Food, a nationally representative survey of American teens’ views on food and its relationship with the planet.
The GENYOUth Insights survey revealed that while today’s youth care strongly about both food and the environment, they don’t understand how these two global issues are connected, where their food comes from, or even why it matters. At the same time, the study suggests that the future of food systems and sustainability may be strengthened by increased leadership and engagement from America’s teens.
