What We Do

The Institute for Food and Development Policy, better known as Food First, works to end the injustices that cause hunger through research, education and action.

Informed by a vast network of activist-researchers, Food First’s analysis and educational resources support communities and social movements fighting for food justice and food sovereignty around the world. Food First gives you the tools to understand our global food system, and to build your local food movement from the ground up.
