SFFA Food Security Survival Kit Now Available

Posted on 11. Oct, 2014 by .

Sydney Food Fairness Alliance is all about food security. We consider that it is highly important to lay the foundations on which to build a sustainable and food secure planet. Our primary focus is Sydney but we network more broadly.

In a world where our food security is threatened, environmentally, politically, industrially, economically, agriculturally, climatically, in fact on so many levels, we need to be able to connect with our food systems socially, practically and ethically, and share our resources.

There are many things we can do from advocacy and action to improve access, to supporting growers markets and community gardens, or growing our own food and sharing plants and seeds, and learning to be innovative with what we have.

This Food Security Survival Kit provides a broad range of relevant links over which to ponder ways we can act to evolve a sustainable pathway towards food security now and for all future generations.

Food Security Survival Kit’s will be distributed at the Right to Food Coalition’s Putting Food on the Table Conference. To access the fact, sheet click on the following link: http://sydneyfoodfairness.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/SFFA-Food-Security-Survival-Kit-Links-for-web-1.pdf
