Gardyn is proud to be a part of the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health on Sept. 28, 2022, to showcase its Gardyn Home technology. This conference is a unique opportunity to mobilize all stakeholders to address one of the most pressing issues in the U.S.: diet-related diseases.
"Gardyn's mission has always been to help everyone have a healthy lifestyle, sustainably," says FX Rouxel, Gardyn CEO. "We believe in the urgent need to make healthy food easily accessible and affordable for everyone, everywhere. Food deserts should be no more in this new century. Educating kids early on about healthy habits and real food is the best way to build healthy habits as they grow into adults."
The technologies Gardyn is developing, based on artificial intelligence, make it possible for everyone to grow healthy food at home, with no green thumb, time, or space required. Gardyn Units successfully grow high yields of nutrient-dense and pesticide-free produce within only two square feet, using 95% less water than traditional agriculture. The result is enough food to feed a family of four, allowing for a healthier lifestyle that is also better for the environment. This home-grown-food revolution is instrumental in reimagining what a healthier future should look like for everyone.
Promoting and providing access to healthy food is paramount in the U.S. as diet-related diseases, including heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes, are a leading cause of death and disability in our country. More than 1 death out of 5 is due to a poor diet. According to the CDC, of U.S. adults, 96 million — more than 1 in 3 — have prediabetes, and 42% have obesity. Fewer than 1 in 10 adolescents and adults eat enough fruits or vegetables. We believe that Gardyn can help everyone develop healthy habits in an accessible and sustainable way.
Gardyn reimagines the future of food. Through the development of cutting-edge patented Hybriponic technology, Gardyn makes growing large quantities of nutritious food convenient. This technology makes it possible to grow produce in your home with limited maintenance in a fully local and highly sustainable way. After several years of research and development in partnership with universities, Gardyn launched the revolutionary "Gardyn Home" device and its innovative gardening assistant KelbyⓇ, which won several awards and garnered broad media attention.
About the Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health
The Biden-Harris Administration will host the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health on Sept. 28, 2022. In parallel to the conference, the administration has released a National Strategy that identifies steps the government will take and catalyzes the public and private sectors to address the intersections between food, hunger, nutrition, and health.
It's been more than 50 years since the first and only White House Conference on Food, Nutrition, and Health was held in 1969. That pivotal event helped galvanize actions that included the creation of life-changing programs like school lunches, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), and changes to how we label foods.
