Food+City is a platform for bold exploration of the global food system. We provoke fresh perspectives on the realities of how we feed cities, and inspire action. 

You’ll hear, see, and feel the Food+City stories manifest themselves in a number of ways over the next year as we uncover unexpected connections between disciplines -- science and art, culture and technology, history and innovation -- and bring together ideas and happenings from all over the globe.

Food+City grew out of The Food Lab at the University of Texas at Austin. You can read more about our evolution on our blog
