Food First/Institute for Food and Development Policy

The purpose of the Institute for Food and Development Policy - Food First - is to eliminate the injustices that cause hunger. We believe a world free of hunger is possible if farmers and communities take back control of the food systems presently dominated by transnational agri-foods industries. We are committed to dismantling racism in the food system and believe in people's right to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems-at home and abroad.
