Food First Meeting: A World Where People Have Access to Food | Berkeley

Food First envisions a world in which all people have access to healthy, ecologically produced, and culturally appropriate food. Their work—including action-oriented research, publications, projects and Food Sovereignty Tours—gives you the tools to understand the global challenges, build your local movement, and engage with the global movement for food sovereignty.

After 40 years of analysis of the global food system, they know that making this vision a reality involves more than technical solutions—it requires political transformation. That’s why Food First supports activists, social movements, alliances, and coalitions working for systemic change.

This event occurs every 3rd Wednesday of the month.
