Today’s Food section features a special report on the Future of Food conference held last week at Georgetown University. Speakers, including Prince Charles, talked about consumers’ demands for “better-for-you” food, better access to fresh food and reducing pollution from pesticides. Tim Carman asked participants about the most pressing issues to address.
