The excitement around computing technology in all aspects of life requires that we tackle fundamental issues of healthcare, leisure, labor, education, and food to create the society we want. The aim of this satellite event was to bring together a variety of different stakeholders, ranging from local food producers, chefs, designers, engineers, data scientists, and sensory scientists, to discuss the interwoven future of computing technology and food. This event was co-located with the AVI 2018 conference and supported by the ACM Future of Computing Academy (ACM-FCA). The event followed a co-creation approach that encourages conjoined creative and critical thinking that feeds into the formulation of a manifesto on the future of computing and food. We hope this will inspire future discussions on the transformative role of computing technology on food.
