What is Food Sovereignty?  The right of people to define their own food systems.  And… what does that mean?  Put the individuals who produce, distribute and consume food at the center of decisions on food systems and policies, rather than the corporations and market institutions they believe have come to dominate the global food system.

As with all causes there is a day to celebrate.  October 16: La Via Campesina celebrates World Food Sovereignty Day.  Need to know more?
