Food Sovereignty Assembly

The US Food Sovereignty Alliance Northeast Regional Gathering is happening November 2nd & 3rd in Milford, New Hampshire. Join us to learn, reflect and continue strategizing together to advance food sovereignty! “Food sovereignty is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems. It puts the aspirations and needs of those who produce, distribute and consume food at the heart of food systems and policies rather than the demands of markets and corporations.” – Declaration of Nyéléni, the first global forum on food sovereignty, Mali, 2007
