    Featured Campaign: Food In Our Hands

    What’s the issue?

    Many movements across the world have mobilised effectively to combat injustices in our food and farming systems, yet in the UK the political and social narrative on food justice remains frustratingly limited to just increasing the number of food banks. In the UK we have so many incredible organisations working towards building real food security and food sovereignty, but what we lack is a cohesive movement that bring us all together and contextualises our current food system against a backdrop of capitalism, colonialism, and the multiple forms of oppression upon which it feeds.

    .

    What are we doing?

    Food In Our Hands is a movement of movements. By partnering with organisations and individuals who are engaged in the struggle to transform our food system and who advocate for food sovereignty, the Landworkers’ Alliance is working to put food – both metaphorically and literally – back in our hands.Over the summer months of 2022 we have been hosting an educational webinar series exploring the different aspects of food sovereignty, and in September we are organising a People’s Food Summit, bringing together people and organisations from across the food and farming sector to strengthen the UK food sovereignty movement. You can read more about the event and buy your ticket here.
