On the occasion of World Food Day, Grassroots International and the National Family Farm Coalition are pleased to announce the release of Food for Thought And Action: A Food Sovereignty Curriculum. The curriculum is accessible online and relevant to folks interested in the impact of agricultural and trade policies on farmers and other small producers (most indigenous communities globally are small producers for instance). The curriculum is in 4 modules: for environmentalists, for consumers, for anti-hunger and faith groups, and for farmers and farmworkers.
It’s entirely virtual and free for download and use. Please feel free to share it with your grantees, colleagues and friends!
Food for Thought and Action: A Food Sovereignty Curriculum is a remarkably useful popular education tool. It offers a practical way to strengthen a growing food sovereignty movement that includes consumers, farmers, environmentalists and faith communities. Building from the experiences of literally millions of grassroots activists world-wide, Food for Thought and Action challenges us to fix our broken food system.
