What did you say? A hackathon on food security and resilience? How could I not jump at the opportunity to participate in this exciting event hosted by Northeastern University’s School of Journalism in Boston!

Over the weekend, designers, data scientists and story tellers from a range of disciplines and industries came together to tackle the vulnerabilities of our food system. Bringing a bit of Hong Kong to Boston, my team “Gourmet Disco Apocalypse” looked at how weather events affect food prices. Powering through the weekend with pizzas and hackathon essentials, our team came in second!!
