This chapter focuses on urban food planning scholarship and their experiences in Global North cities. It offers reasons as to why planning for regenerative food systems is a vital new frontier in city planning, and points to how urban planners and other urban professionals can engage with food systems in their practice. Food is a fundamental city infrastructure which pervades, and shapes, all four key urban functions – dwelling, work, recreation, and transportation – codified by modern city planners during the first half of the twentieth century. Public food systems include all publicly-funded meals and related services and infrastructures which govern the food procurement of institutions like public schools, governmental agencies, senior centers, day care, prisons, and hospitals, among others. Demand for researchers and professionals versed in food systems planning is rising not merely inside academic institutions, but in government agencies and businesses as well.
