Our Mission


The Rudd Center for Food Policy and Health promotes solutions to food insecurity, poor diet quality, and weight bias through research and policy.

Why We Pursue Our Mission

At the Rudd Center, we believe that everyone, regardless of who they are, where they live, and what they look like, deserves the opportunity to eat healthfully. This is not the reality today. We are committed to interrupting this cycle of inequity by conducting research to inform advocacy and policy, supporting evidence-based solutions, challenging the status quo, and holding the food industry, media, government, and others that affect the food environment accountable for their actions.
