Drivers of Food Choice

The purpose of the Drivers of Food Choice competitive grants program is to facilitate, synthesize and disseminate research to provide a deep understanding of the drivers of food choice among the poor in developing countries in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa that account for 90% of the global burden of undernutrition. DFC projects also aim to strengthen country-level leadership in nutrition, and foster a global community of food-choice researchers.
