Food Justice

Food Justice is a call for a fairer food system. It considers food to be a human right. It involves communities working together to build more just and sustainable food systems. It questions the limits of charity-based emergency food aid as the dominant solution to food poverty.

It involves collective practical and political learning and action amongst a diversity of citizens and especially those most excluded from the current food system.
