    I think the most important solution is to get the right players to the table. This can't be done by government working on its own. It can't be done by universities and departments of food, science and agriculture. It can't be done by food companies alone. Food companies make food and distribute food. The government creates the policy and the regulations and the environment. The universities help with the sciences going on.

    We need to bring it together in that collaboration. I'm convinced the answers are there. But the most important question we have to answer is, "How do we learn to talk to each other and collaborate? What are we going to create as the incentives?" That's the solution. Let's get people together. If we can put a man on the moon, if we can eradicate smallpox, if we can almost eradicate polio, why is it that we can't do a very fundamental but ubiquitous challenge and come together to understand how do we get food?
