The Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA) – which includes Agrifooders amongst its numbers – is proud to present a vision for a fair food system in Australia, AFSA call it the People’s Food Plan. The People’s Food Plan is a grass roots vision for a fair food system in Australia.
The idea for a grass roots driven food policy emerged following disappointment with the Federal Government’s National Food Plan, which privileges big business and makes no concessions for future environmental challenges, public health, or the maintenance of small-scale farming. With a network of dedicated and highly engaged volunteers, the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance has consulted with over 600 people across Australia through ‘kitchen-table talks’. Please have a read, and let us know what you agree/disagree with, or what we have left out – details in the People’s Food Plan, or contact Carol Richards at firstname.lastname@example.org.
