The future of food is not a faraway horizon, it’s unfolding before our eyes. In our third and final installment of our mini-series about the future of food we take you to four locations on the front line of our rapidly changing world. Depending on how things shake out, these communities could impact us all. Travel with us to occupied farms in Palestine, fishing boats in Louisiana’s wetlands, the first Starbucks shop to unionize, and to outdoor dining tables at New York City restaurants.
