The Story of Food First
Founded in 1975 by Joseph Collins and Frances Moore Lappé—author of the revolutionary bestseller Diet for a Small Planet—Food First has been working to end the injustices that cause hunger since 1975. Since its first book, Food First: Beyond the Myth of Scarcity, Food First has published over 60 books and hundreds of articles, and research reports. An archive of our work fighting for food justice and food sovereignty can be found here.

A small but dedicated staff will be re-constituted to collaborate with others and work impactfully to coordinate Food First activities.
A talented group of early career thought leaders, who are dedicating their careers to supporting grassroots struggles and advancing the global movement for food sovereignty, will be selected soon for the 2022-2023 cohort of Food First Fellows.
