Food Insecurity

A local problem with global conscequences

If humanity does not cause a dramatic shift in the default future of food insecurity in urban communities, the challenge will increase exponentially as population grows.  Access to local food must grow and innovate relative to population growth for communities to thrive.

Local Food Production + Smart Farming

Combine local food access with a heaping scoop of education and hands-on learning, and you have a recipe for a sustainable lively food culture in even the most at-risk communities.
