Food in Cities

Carolyn Steel

Feeding its citizens has been one of the main challenges of cities since its earliest history. Although industrialization has overcome many issues, it has also created new ones that need to be urgently addressed.

Carolyn Steel is a leading thinker on food and cities and the author of the books Hungry City: How Food Shapes Our Lives and Sitopia: How Food Can Save the World. Thanks to her concept sitopia, which means food-place, Carolyn has raised awareness on what it takes to feed urban settlements and improve their food system.
