We envision a world where  everyone has enough affordable, healthy and culturally appropriate food where no one is hungry, and where all who work in the food chain
are fairly compensated, respected and celebrated!

Join us in building more equitable and ecological food & farm systems!

The Global Food Week of Action includes World Food Day (Oct. 16), International Day for Rural Women (Oct. 15), and International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (Oct. 17).
