Urban areas—and the largest cities in particular—are places defined by extreme social inequality, where poverty and social marginalization exist alongside wealth and power. One of the key measures of poverty is access to food, which isn’t guaranteed to everyone, as Covid-19 has shown us more clearly than ever.

How can we set the table of a city so that everyone can enjoy healthy, quality food? What policies and changes do we need to enact in order to make our cities more open, more equal, and more hospitable? What good practices from around the world—from charitable and social canteens to delivery services, shopping donations for those in difficulty, and projects which combine cooking and cultural exchange with migrant communities—can help us create a brighter future for cities?

Slow Food Communities from across the world share and compare their experiences.
