More and more people are embracing Fair Food – healthy nutritious food that is produced locally - at an affordable price for consumers and with a fair return to farmers. Fair Food Week 2014 will run from 10-19 October and will celebrate the International Year of Family Farming.
There are rumblings across the country. Murmurings and whisperings of plans afoot as preparations for Fair Food Week gather pace. Buoyed by the success of last year, organisers are putting together fun and innovative events that capture the themes of the week.
The Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA) is a farmer-led civil society organisation of people working together towards socially-just and ecologically-sound food and agriculture systems that foster the democratic participation of Indigenous Peoples, smallholders, and local communities in decision making processes.
