BACKGROUND: The US Food Sovereignty Alliance (USFSA), the Presbyterian Hunger Program and dozens of organizations around the US and abroad use World Food Day on October 16 as a marker to highlight the need for food sovereignty. Every October we join with allies and partners globally in a concerted push for actions that help end hunger and poverty, and build more just food and farm systems everywhere.
The Food Week of Action seeks to amplify the solutions being developed by front-line communities, grassroots organizations, and national groups and coalitions to resist the harm in the dominant food and farm system, and to build more equitable and ecologically-sane systems in their place.
