This is the place to put news, blogs, articles, non-profit videos, personal rants and insights about Food Sovereignty, Food Security and Indigenous Food Sovereignty.

Don't know the difference? Basically: Food security is making sure you have food. Food sovereignty is having local control over the food system that gets the food to your table (and partially, being able to trace the steps). Indigenous Food Sovereignty is when Indigenous people have control over their own food systems - this is often linked to traditional culture and challenging colonization.

A subreddit dedicated to food sovereignty. What exactly does that mean?

What are we standing for?

A world where…

…all peoples, nations and states are able to determine their own food producing systems and policies that provide every one of us with good quality, adequate, affordable, healthy and culturally appropriate food;

…all peoples in each of our countries are able to live with dignity, earn a living wage for their labour and have the opportunity to remain in their homes, if they so choose;

...food sovereignty is considered a basic human right, recognised and implemented by communities, peoples, states and international bodies with respect to the effect it has on at least 7 generations to come;

…we are able to conserve and rehabilitate rural environments, fish populations, landscapes and food traditions based on ecologically sustainable management of land, soils, water, seas, air, seeds, livestock and all other biodiversity;

…we value, recognize and respect our worldwide diversity of traditional knowledge, food, language and culture, and the way we organise and express ourselves;

…. there is genuine and integral agrarian reform that guarantees full rights to land, defends and recovers the territories of indigenous peoples, ensures fishing communities’ access and control over their fishing areas and eco-systems, honours access and control by pastoral communities over pastoral lands (shepherds herding livestock) and migratory routes, assures decent jobs with fair remuneration and labour rights for all, and a future for young people in the countryside;...where agrarian reform revitalises inter-dependence between producers and consumers, ensures and promotes community survival, social and economic justice, ecological sustainability, and respect for local autonomy and governance with equal rights for women and men...where agrarian reform guarantees rights to territory and self-determination for all peoples;

...share our lands and territories peacefully and fairly among our peoples, be we any race, indigenous peoples, artisanal fishers, pastoralists, or others who honor and respect these declarations;

…in the case of natural and human-created disasters and conflict-recovery situations, food sovereignty acts as a form of “insurance” that strengthens local recovery efforts and mitigates negative impacts... where we remember that communities affected by disasters are not helpless, and where strong local organization for self-help is the key to recovery;

...peoples’ power to make decisions about their material, natural and spiritual heritage are defended;

...all peoples have the right to defend their territories from the actions of transnational corporations.

What provided you knowledge on your journey to a healthy lifestyle?

Looking backward, I wasn’t afforded much knowledge of healthy food or even habits with my food, I am interested in changing everything about the way and why I eat, I want to fuel my body for the future not suffice the grumble, I want to prepare for future illness and injury, and I have noticed a stigma when I am trying to educate my self from the fast food lanes and even now big super markets, I want to read up on anything that anyone who reads this thinks helped them and will help anyone looking to start like a baby and relearn food! Best on your journey!

Palestinian Food sovereignty event with Vivien Sansour & Laila El-Haddad

Hi! sharing this event next week on Palestinian food sovereignty with Vivien Sansour (founder of the Palestine Heirloom Seed Library) & Laila El-Haddad (journalist, author of The Gaza Kitchen) that may be of interest to members of this group!

Join Middle East Children’s Alliance & Just World Educational virtually for a summer meal prepared by Laila El-Haddad, with virtual assistance from her dear friend Vivien Sansour. In this exclusive seasonal cooking demonstration, they will discuss resilience against both the physical and culinary partitions of the occupation – as well as its attempts to destroy diversity of food. In this moment of new imagining for Palestine, how can we create a plate that threads us together?
