Food + Future was born in 2016 as a collaboration between IDEO, Target, and the MIT Media Lab.

We all wanted to try something different. Is it unrealistic to think that radical collaborations and transparency can fix what entire industries and governments have failed to solve in the food system for generations? Perhaps. What we do know is that the food systems of tomorrow won’t be designed for us, they’ll be designed by us. Already, our triad has become a vast network, and large, loud actions are colliding with small, quiet voices to complement, and even amplify, one another. Join us in our journey.
