In celebration of the official debut of Worldchanging Seattle, we bring you our Seattle to the World series: a collection of the 100 best local innovations, institutions, policies and people that we think could benefit readers in cities around the world. We've collected your recommendations – and sought out our own – to locate what we felt was a sample of Seattle's most inspiring solutions for a better future.
We're kicking off the series with a week dedicated exclusively to the best in Seattle's food scene. This week at Worldchanging Seattle, we've been serving up profiles of Seattle's most important food-related success stories – giving you an inside look into each solution, and showing you our take on why each one is worth broadcasting to the world. As with a good meal, we hope you enjoy … and that you find plenty of opportunity to share with others.
