FRESH, good and fair food needs a fresh, new and innovative event to demonstrate its value to all Australians.
That’s why we – the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance – are bringing together communities, social entrepreneurs, creative and passionate individuals, smart food businesses and local governments across Australia to celebrate the work of Australia’s fair food pioneers – the women and men doing the vital work of creating a fairer food system for all of us.
“It’s a new national event, Fair Food Week”, said Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance spokesman, Nick Rose.

Across the country during Fair Food Week (19-25 August, 2013) there’s a wonderful diversity of events that will attract, inspire and entertain you: food forums, food workshops, food films, farmers’ fairs, food swaps, community garden and farm tours, and more.
