TED is a non-profit devoted to "ideas worth spreading" and you can find literally thousands of free — inspiring and awesome — talks from experts and innovators around the world. We've decided to highlight 24 TED talks specifically around food issues that we found compelling and worth sharing.

Please check out and watch as many of these as you can. And, most importantly, forward this email to 24 friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers who might be open to watching a few of these insightful talks--and learning more about the food system. Also, we've posted this list on the Food Tank website and invite you to share it with friends via the web and social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIN, or Pinterest.
