As WDET continues to explore issues related to food security in our local communities, National Geographic is taking a look at this as a global issue starting with the May 2014 cover story of National Geographic magazine, titled Feeding 9 Billion. Feeding 9 Billion is the first of an eight-month part series exploring how we feed a growing global population. Author of the National Geographic cover story, Jonathan Foley, discusses further about the global population issue.
