D.C.-based National Geographic is getting into the food media business. The company announced today it will launch NatGeoFood.com. A press release describes the site as a web portal "dedicated to exploring issues surrounding how we eat today and how we can provide food for all as the world's population grows and climate change impacts growing seasons and planting zones."
They've already signed up several contributors, including chef José Andrés, policy expert Mary Beth Albright, science blogger Maryn McKenna, "casual foodie" Jasmine Wiggins and food historian Rebecca Rupp. They'll all contribute to a blog called The Plate (not to be confused with the CityEats blog of the same name). The website is here.
