  2. Food for public school lunches is coming from more sustainable sources.
  3. More food waste is being composted.
  4. Permaculture projects are thriving all over the world.
  5. In one of the most obese countries in the world, obesity is on the decline for low-income children.
  6. Food aid is changing – and supporting developing countries’ economies.
  7. New forms of food governance, such as food policy councils, are gaining popularity.
