Cities cover just 2% of the worlds surface, but consume 75% of the worlds resources. Global food production increased by 145% in the last 4 decades of the 20th century - yet an estimated 800 million people are still hungry. In 2005 British supermarkets sent half a million tonnes of edible food to landfill - the whole food sector put together sent 17 million tonnes. One quarter of the British population is obese - one in three meals we eat is a ready meal. WHY? The relationship between food and cities is fundamental to our every day lives. Food shapes cities, and through them, it moulds us - along with the countryside that feeds us. The gargantuan effort necessary to feed cities arguably has a greater social and physical impact on us and our planet than anything else we do. Yet few of us are conscious of the process and we rarely stop to wonder how food reaches our plates.
