Food, Hunger & Environment

Food democracy means the right of all to one of life’s essentials—safe, nutritious food. It also suggests fair access to land to grow food and fair return for those who labor to produce it. Food democracy concerns itself with the future as well: It implies economic rules that encourage communities to safeguard the soil, water, and wildlife on which all our lives and futures depend. Below you will find resources highlighting the key issues surrounding food democracy: hunger, agricultural production and climate change, as well as solutions to help combat the food and environmental crises facing us today.
