The Right to Food Coalition’s inaugural food security conference Putting Food on the Table: Food Security is Everyone’s Business was held on 13 & 14 October 2014 at Casula Arts Powerhouse Centre, Sydney. Over 150 delegates from across Australia, ranging from policy makers, academics, community development and health professionals, came together to be inspired, explore solutions and initiate action on the governance, community, population and communication issues causing food insecurity.
