Food First is a “people’s think tank” dedicated to ending the injustices that cause hunger and helping communities take back control of their food systems. Food First advances its mission through three interrelated work areas—research, education and action. They are designed to 1) promote informed citizen engagement with the institutions and policies that control food and 2) integrate local, national, and global efforts. Food First informs and amplifies voices within social movements that are fighting for food justice and food sovereignty. They have been running Food Sovereignty Tours, including tours to Cuba, for more than 20 years.
