It’s official. The Resnick Program is now the Resnick Center! Lynda and Stewart Resnick have donated an additional $2.375 million to UCLA School of Law to strengthen the research and educational resources of the Resnick Center for Food Law and Policy.
From the announcement: “‘Families must have accurate and honest information about their food so that they can prepare healthy meals,’ Stewart Resnick said. ‘UCLA and the Resnick Center are undertaking groundbreaking work to improve the incredibly complex modern food system, and Lynda and I want to see that effort grow in impact for decades to come.'”
“Michael Roberts, the founding executive director of the Resnick Center, said the Resnicks’ generosity will allow scholars to take a longer-term approach to work in food law and will enhance opportunities for students.”
This exciting gift will allow the Resnick Center to continue to engage in research, teaching, and advocacy to improve the food system for years to come.
