FOOD JUSTICE


OUR MISSION — Industrial agriculture is a major driver of climate change, from deforestation to soil loss to factory farm emissions. Local food production, organic agriculture, carbon ranching and composting are part of the solution.

Instead of emitting greenhouse gases, sustainable agriculture traps carbon in the soil. The world’s 2 billion small-scale food producers, including our own local farmers and urban gardeners, already provide 70% of the world’s food. They can reverse climate change and feed the world! Let’s bring this message of hope to the People’s Climate Summit!

Food Justice is communities exercising their right to grow, sell, and eat healthy food. Healthy food is fresh, nutritious, affordable, culturally-appropriate, and grown locally with care for the well-being of the land, workers, and animals.

Foodprint (n): our food system’s contribution to greenhouse gas emissions and global climate change.
