#23: Eating millet pasta, ordered on Amazon in the southern village of Madikere…

Hey there,

This week, we were at FAO, Rome as part of the World Food Day 2018. We presented our research from the global mission in front of a closed audience from FAO and GFAR.

Here’s what we spoke about the Future of Food. Being at FAO on the World Food Day, however, was a real surreal experience.

“Our actions are our future” was this year’s WFD theme.

Often we feel that changing something is far-fetched and out of our control. But something as simple as our everyday food choices can shape our food future tomorrow.

Bringing to light more such edible issues and working towards them is how we’re approaching this.

What about you?

Stay hungry, stay curious.
