Food sovereignty for us dummies

FS-Booklet-Cover-2010 “The day that hunger is eradicated from the Earth there will be the greatest spiritual explosion the world has ever known.  Humanity cannot imagine the joy that will burst into the world on the day of that great revolution.”  (Federico Garcia Lorca)

If you have heard the term – FOOD SOVEREIGNTY – and not known what the hay it is (or how to spell it!), take heart because you are not alone.

Luckily, our friends at Grassroots International and the National Family Farm Coalition have come to the rescue. Now you can hear U.S. and international family farmers talk about what food sovereignty is to them – simply! And concisely!!

And you can read it in your mother tongue, if that happens to be English, Spanish or Portugese. (French is coming soon)

Food Sovereignty for all!

  • Bring justice and sustainability to our food system
  • Localize control and create resilient, regional food chains
  • Democratize decisions over what is grown and who gets to eat

All people have the right to decide what they eat and to ensure that food in their community is healthy and accessible for everyone.

“Oh taste and see that the Lord is good.” (Psalm 34:8)
