Global Buffet

What to eat? Where does our food come from?  What are its true costs? And is there enough of it to feed the whole world? Our food gives us a lot to think about.

In Latitudes’ Global Buffet special, we give you a taste of these issues. We’ll find out why on the same planet a billion people are hungry, and more than a billion people are overweight. We’ll look at how food can cause conflicts, and also be a source of healing. And we’ll explore the future of food—from new models of production, to using sound to change how food tastes.
