Their literature talks about "food justice" and the 99% getting sick and tired while "multi-billionaires make mega-profits speculating with our food". It also has code word "occupy" and talks about the "injustices that cause hunger" and that "food has become another form of oppression" and many more progressive buzzwords. I'd rather donate to local food pantries.

As a graduate student of agricultural policy, I've found Food First to be an invaluable resource for atypical, emerging ideas and arguments, regarding global food and development issues, that are well-grounded in reliable research and empirical evidence. Food First scholars and writers are not afraid to reveal root injustices and assign blame, but they also take care to check their facts and offer practical solutions.

The Great!

I often read Food First's reports and bulletins and use many of their papers and resources for my own scholarly research and analysis.

I would recommend toning down a bit of the drama in some bulletins and press releases. While passion is important, and I personally tend to agree with Food First's positions, highly sensationalized pieces give the impression Food First is not conducting objective, thorough research. More people may read and pay attention to Food First's work if it's presented and communicated in a more balanced and level-headed sort of way.

Food First's work is invaluable to developing an understanding of the key issues regarding food policy and development globally. Their vision is impeccable and their analyses cut straight to the heart of the problems at hand, often providing alternative solutions to those propounded by the eurocentric mainstream.

Food First's knowledge-based activism stands as an example for many. It grounds its work in vital principles of equity and democracy. It doesn't dodge complexity, but puts across its messages in straightforward terms and through concrete cases. It continually refreshes and renews its knowledge through a wide and well-anchored network. Its overall approach keeps the focus where it should be, on skewed political and economic power, on why it needs to be tackled and on what can be done to tackle it.

The Great!
