Access to fresh, affordable, nutritious, locally produced and culturally appropriate food (as well as fuel to cook it and time to prepare it) should be the guaranteed right of every individual and household. However, global food systems are increasingly dominated by an “industrial diet,” in which highly processed and nutrient-poor foods are widely available and the easiest to come by. Many countries, including the UK, have disgraceful levels of food insecurity and diet-related health problems; And many of the alleged solutions depend on the charity of the very economic and governmental policies that are responsible for these problems in the first place.
In this session organized by the Landworkers’ Alliance and La Via Campesina, an international panel discusses how solutions to hunger need to be systemic and focus on meeting people’s needs, rather than filling pockets. of corporations. It also talks about how food producers and communities are organizing and fighting to regain control of their food systems and ensure that everyone has access to good food at all times.
Join organizers at the forefront of radical, grassroots and sustainable initiatives to hear why food aid, locally and internationally, undermines food justice and perpetuates the causes of hunger. Plus, learn more about their powerful community solutions to address food insecurity and hunger.
