A think tank for food

Food Tank goes live

January 15, 2013

Last week saw the launch of Food Tank, an online “food think tank” that collates news and resources about food politics and sustainability. Founded by activists Ellen Gustafson and Danielle Nierenberg, Food Tank is not unlike Anna Lappé’s recently launched Food Myths project; both aim to get the word out about what’s really going on with our food system, and generate solutions to the globe’s food challenges. As Nierenberg told Grist, “It’s not just about your CSA, it’s about a whole bigger system that needs to be changed.”
