Food First

The Institute for Food and Development Policy, better known as Food First, works to end the injustices that cause hunger through research, education and action. To build the flourishing, equitable, and sustainable world we desire, we need to change what we do—and how we think. Luckily, communities around the world are standing up for equity and sustainability, especially in our food system. Reeling from dispossession, hunger, food insecurity and diet-related diseases, social movements today are a bold combination of innovative practices and transformative politics. While forging alternatives like agroecology, food hubs, and food commons in frontline neighborhoods and villages, they are also fighting to protect and democratize land, water, and resource rights on the political front. They are fighting exclusionary and reactionary ideologies with dignity and compassion.
