The Institute for Food and Development Policy, better known as Food First, envisions a world in which all people have access to healthy, ecologically produced, and culturally appropriate food. Our mission is to end the injustices that cause hunger. As a “people’s think and do tank,” our mission is to end the injustices that cause hunger and support communities to take back control of their food systems. We advance our mission through three interrelated work areas: research, education and action. 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. Our goal, now, is to not only continue that legacy, but to broaden our actions aimed at amplifying BIPOC-led voices in communities and movements that expose the root causes of hunger, mobilize local food system implementation strategies, and advance real solutions.
The purpose of the Rise Up, Scale Up Listening Lab will be to listen closely and learn about BIPOC-led food justice and sovereignty movement work. The goals of the Listening Labs will be to identify best practices and/or gaps.
