Food For Thought

Enjoy three events inspired by National Geographic’s series “The Future of Food,” exploring not just what we eat, but looking at how and why we eat it—and asking how we will feed a growing human population. From the fields around the world where food is produced to the kitchens where it is prepared, we will bring together great photographers, top cooks, and leading scholars to investigate and celebrate this universal human need.

From Farm to Table: <br> A Photographer's Journey

For the cover article in the May 2014 issue of National Geographic, veteran photographer Jim Richardson was given the task of photographing the true heroes of our hungry planet: the often obscure, faceless people who bring the food we eat forth from the Earth. It was a daunting undertaking, which took him from the vast wheat fields of the Great Plains to a potato harvest high in the Andes, and from emerald rice fields in Bali to sweltering fields in sub-Saharan Africa to document humanity’s biggest enterprise—feeding the planet.

The National Geographic Museum will be open until 7:15 pm for viewing of the exhibit Food: Our Global Kitchen.
