As chronic diseases and climate change continue to increase at a rapid rate, many people are starting to understand the importance of changing their lifestyles to fit such a dynamic world and society.
The way we eat, produce, and live are all deeply intertwined with our own health and the health of the globe.
While it is vital to feed all of the people on earth, we must do so in a way that is healthy and sustainable. After years of varying success through factory farming and processed foods, there is now a general awareness of how important natural foods and farming methods are to our health and the ecological balance.
Natural foods are also usually more nutritious and better tasting than industrial ones. Nothing is better than sharing a delicious homecooked meal with friends and family!
As ardent advocates for natural foods, delicious cooking, the environment, and human wellness, oliveoil.com is proud to offer this $1,000 scholarship to students that share these passions–including an appreciation for olive oil.
In particular, this scholarship is for students that are currently, or planning on, studying any field that has to do with food, plant agriculture, nutrition, the environment, or the intersection of these fields.
