There are alternatives to unequal and unjust food distribution produced, among other things, by industrial agriculture, which entails long distance shipping, corporate control mechanisms, chemical preservatives, et al. Our growing desire for accountable food systems is behind the need to assess the abundance of farmland in close proximity to small, often impoverished, towns and rural communities in every region of the US and around the world.

Find out how food justice, food production, and food infrastructure connect directly to design. Chefs, designers, architects, biochemists, and farmers are part of this movement.  How are they doing it New London, Connecticut, Lindsborg, Kansas, and Poughkeepsie, New York?
