In a world expected to reach a staggering population of 10 billion by 2050, and with global temperatures rising fast, humanity must fundamentally change the way it grows and consumes food. But can we produce enough food to feed ourselves sustainably for an uncertain future? How will agriculture adapt to a climate change? How will climate change determine what we eat? Will we really be eating bugs?
Uncertain Harvest questions scientists, chefs, activists, entrepreneurs, farmers, philosophers, and engineers working on the global future of food on how to make a more equitable, safe, sustainable, and plentiful food future. Examining cutting-edge research on the science, culture, and economics of food, the authors present a roadmap for a global food policy, while examining eight foods that could save us: algae, caribou, kale, millet, tuna, crickets, milk, and rice.

"Engaging, insightful, clever, sobering, and hard-hitting!" -Steffanie Scott, co-author of Organic Food and Farming in China 

"Uncertain Harvest offers an unflinching look at some of the biggest challenges we face today. By bringing together scholars from the fields of food studies, geography, and history, the book offers insightful answers to the questions: How did we get here and what lessons can we learn from our past? And how might the most commonly-touted 'future of food' solutions play out, both globally and locally?" -Ann Hui, author of Chop Suey Nation 

"What happens when a historian, an activist, and a techno-optimist come together to envision our food future? A surprisingly balanced and compelling snapshot of what''s possible: local problems get local solutions, and the ancient art of feeding ourselves benefits from a much-needed update. At last, hope we might actually be able to count on." -Dan Barber, author of The Third Plate: Field Notes on the Future of Food
