People’s Food Plan public forum
Hosted by the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance, a great opportunity to hear more about the government's National Food Plan and why so many people feel strongly that it lacks vision.
Join us to discuss food sovereignty and participate in developing an alternative to the National Food Plan - a People's Food Plan.
Food – along with water, and air – is the essence of life. So healthy food systems are needed to:
• Feed all people well
• Look after all food producers
• Nurture the land and water from which food is produced
As you may know, the Federal Government is currently developing a ‘National Food Plan’ to integrate all food related policy. It proposes more of the same – a market-driven food system, to make profits for agribusiness and retail corporations, with little regard for social, economic and environmental justice.
In reply to this, the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA) has been working hard for the last few months to develop a 'People's food plan'.
