Every day, nearly a billion people in the world do not have enough safe and nutritious food to lead healthy and active lives. Many of them also lack access to enough clean water to meet their needs. By 2050, our global food demand will double to meet the needs of nearly 10 billion people, making water and food security one of the most urgent global challenges of our time.

For thousands of generations we have selectively bred crops with one goal: increasing production. That increase in production has been enormously valuable in feeding people all over the world, and it is part of Nebraska’s proud tradition of being a global leader in agriculture. But what if that expertise can also be used to make food that fights disease?
The Nebraska Food for Health Center (NFHC) was established in 2016 with a challenge from the Jeff Raikes Foundation with the primary mission “of improving human health by linking agriculture and food production to wellness and disease prevention through microbiome research.”
The Nebraska Food for Health Center’s impact is achieved through its diverse research platform – a combination of UNL’s high throughput phenotyping systems, UNL’s gnotobiotic animal facilities, UNO’s Callitrichid Research Center, the combination of UNMC and UNL’s Clinical & Health programs, as well as a robust Fellows Program. The Center also collaborates with other universities, businesses, and government agencies around the world to address issues on a global scale.
When you make a gift to the University of Nebraska Foundation you can trust that it will be used in the way in which it was intended. That’s a promise we’ve kept with our donors since our organization was founded in 1936.
