From Food Security to Food Sovereignty

From Food Security to Food Sovereignty

The state of today’s food system leaves everyone asking questions. Who are the shot callers when it comes to food policy? What are the motives? Is the general population taken into consideration? Food security has been a fundamental principle incorporated into hunger alleviation efforts. However, to deepen the food activism focus, a more radical concept is on the table: food sovereignty. Antonio Roman-Alcala writes about what is so compelling about food sovereignty and how people play their part, individually and collectively, in achieving both food security and food sovereignty. He ties in the many struggles contemporary society faces today and looks to food sovereignty as a movement that could initiate a means to an end.
