“Civil Eats is a trusted voice that works to tell meaningful, nuanced, and often overlooked food politics stories in an increasingly challenging media landscape.
We report on the most important food and agriculture stories of our time and consistently challenge our readers to ask key questions about sustainability, food justice, nutrition, and policy. It’s for these reasons that we were awarded the James Beard Foundation’s Publication of the Year in 2014”.
