Welcome to Sydney Food Fairness Alliance

Posted on 09. Mar, 2013 by .


The Sydney Food Fairness Alliance  (SFFA) is a network of consumers, rural producers, health professionals, community workers and advocates who want to see food security for all within a socially, economically and environmentally sustainable food system.

2013 promises to be a busy year for SFFA with the release of the Federal Govt <em>National Food Plan</em> due, and the alternative ‘ grass roots’ <em>People’s Food Plan</em> launched by the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance. SFFA will play an active role in the discussion about what kind of food future we want and how we need to shape it now. Join us to be part of it!


We will:

  • Continue support for farmers, in the face of threats by CSG and supermarket price fixing
  • Explore the role that local councils can play in promoting food security and food access
  • Lobby for increases in income support payments to help the 1-2 million Australians who go hungry
  • Showcase challenging ideas, stimulating discussions and examples of great ways to work round food


Members include people working in sectors such as:

  • health and aged care
  • community services and welfare
  • local government
  • urban planning
  • agriculture and primary industries
  • community gardens, Permaculture and organic food industries and organisations
  • food and hospitality industries
  • media
  • education
  • ethicists and religious organisations
  • concerned and interested individuals
