Summary
Hunger is one of the biological drives essential to the survival of the human species. Constantly in search of something to eat, humanity has invented societal structures and means of conservation in an effort to ensure an adequate supply of food. This program traces the history of humankind's efforts to satiate the need to feed, from hunting and gathering, to agriculture and animal husbandry, to barter and commerce. And going beyond simple subsistence, the use of eating as a social ritual and pastime of gourmands is also addressed.
