GlobalAt the global level, the Food Culture Alliance consists of 3 member organisations: Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), EAT and Global Business School Network (GBSN). These organizations provide advice on strategic matters ensuring that the direction of the Food Culture Alliance remains aligned with mission and vision. At the global level, we primarily work on building knowledge and evidence on food culture, support global membership, and advocacy for the Alliance.
KenyaIn Kenya, we have established a diverse multistakeholder alliance consisting of stakeholders and organizations in the media & food sector, land use, youth social ventures, and heritage organizations that seek to preserve Kenyan cuisine. These organizations will embark on a learning & action journey to deep dive into Kenyan food culture and to devise food culture interventions to address preferences for nutritious and sustainable foods.

Similar to Kenya, its stakeholders will embark on a learning and action journey to discover how the cultural dimension of selective eating, specifically the tension between authority and purity, can enable a shift in preferences for nutritious and sustainable foods.
