With a total of US$2 million in prize money and a global network of partners, the Food System Vision Prize is an invitation for organizations, companies, governments, and other entities around the world to develop inspirational, concrete Visions for the food system of the future.

The Prize, launched by The Rockefeller Foundation in partnership with SecondMuse and OpenIDEO, is driven by a central question: “How might we envision regenerative and nourishing food futures for 2050?”

To find answers, the Prize seeks systems-focused proposals that encourage people worldwide to take action and think collaboratively about the future. Submitted Visions should also reflect the Prize’s core beliefs that include diversity, resilience, equity, and the power of food to connect people.

“Our Prize asks Visionaries to consider technology, diet, environment, policy and governance, economics, and culture together,” according to Sara Farley, Managing Director of The Rockefeller Foundation’s Food Initiative. “It’s a totally holistic, systems approach to casting our minds toward the future.”
