The Common Table is a community-binding platform sharing stories and ideas from around the world about people who are searching for ways to fix and improve our food systems. Our goal is to understand how systems of production, distribution and consumption can be changed, and to identify the people and projects forging ways towards a better, fairer food future.
In order to talk about food and food practice today, we need a vocabulary that acknowledges and reflects the dynamic complexity of the systems involved. The Common Table introduces our new clustered category system.
