I became acquainted with Food First after attending a course from Executive Director Dr. Holt-Gimenez. Reading Food First's publication "Food Rebellions" really put global food issues into perspective for me. Later, volunteering at Food First was a great experience. Their work approaches global and local issues in a thoughtful way that is fully informed by historical precedents.
