Review for INSTITUTE FOR FOOD AND DEVELOPMENT POLICY INC, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Food First responds to my indigenous understanding of Food Sovereignty: Food sovereignty is much more than producing, processing and consuming our own food. Food sovereignty responds to our cosmic way of understanding life as a whole, as being part of nature and the universe. Our life is anchored in values, principles and rules that stand for culture, cooperation living among people, equilibrium with nature, and protecting the common good for the benefit of communities, nations and the people that haven’t yet been born. We try to build a synthesis between spirituality and conduct. That is why I share, learn and work with engaged people at Food First.

Role:  Advisor & I have organized and participated in the translation to Spanish of three Food First books. I´ve traveled with Food First to learn about the real causes of inmigration. I´ve work at Food First garden to produce some of the food we share daily for lunch.
