Food First: Institute for Food & Development Policy
As food insecurity has increased in the United States the demand for food banks, pantries, and shelters has also developed and expanded. Although food banks are a vital emergency and safety net that keeps the hunger crisis at bay by providing food to people who would otherwise go hungry, they cannot address the root causes that perpetuate and exacerbate hunger in America today. Instead, our growing reliance on food banks may distract us from finding lasting solutions to the hunger crisis.
Society for International Development briefing from FAO Summit
An online book with full color photo illustrations and linked video and audio files. It describes the ecological basis of food and agriculture, the social and environmental costs of modern food systems, and the policy reversals needed to democratize food systems. The photos, video clips and audio recordings show farmers, pastoralists, indigenous peoples, fisherfolk, food workers and consumers all working to promote food sovereignty - highlighting the importance of locally controlled and diverse food systems to sustain both people and nature. NOW AVAILABLE: Part I (chapters 1-3), Part II (chapter 4) and chapters 5 and 7 of Part III are available for download.
