A major gift to Arizona State University has established the Kelly and Brian Swette Center for Sustainable Food Systems and created the Swette Family Scholarship Program, to provide financial support to students from agricultural farm-working and food-working families. The center will tackle food systems from a holistic standpoint, taking into consideration water and energy use, carbon footprint and nutrition, all with an emphasis on efficiency across the global supply chain. It will be housed within the School of Sustainability. As part of the center, the nation's first degree program in Sustainable Food Systems will be launched to prepare the next generation of researchers and business leaders to lead the way in sustainable food systems.
