Today, National Geographic launched, a food-focused Web portal. The new site will include digital-only features, such as animated motion graphics, videos, food facts of the day, and news stories.

The Nat Geo Food May cover story by Jonathan Foley, titled EAT: The New Food Revolution,” is all kinds of awesome and presented in the “Snow Fall” style popularized by the NYT. In the story, Foley explains five ways we can meet the food needs of 9 billion people in 2050.

The online article includes stunning photographs of small-scale farmers who are helping to feed the world.

Other stories on the site include “the not so sweet story of America’s addiction to sugar,” a news story revealing that 20-30% of wild-caught imported seafood comes from pirate fishing, and an article on “Space Beer.”

Nat Geo has also launched a food-related blog called The Plate—bloggers include chef José Andrés, science blogger Maryn McKenna, and food policy analyst Mary Beth Albright.

We can’t wait to read and absorb all the fantastic Nat Geo Food content to come.
