Who gets to eat?

Covid-19 has shown us the problems in our food system. Hunger is growing throughout the world in communities already fighting climate change, conflict, and poverty. But we produce more than enough food to feed the world.

In this issue we look at the big inequalities in our global food system, and we ask: who gets to eat – who doesn’t get to eat– and how do we fix it?
