People need food – enough food, safe food, nutritious food, and the right kind of food, to meet their needs. The right to food is a basic human right that underlies and is part of all of our work.
Food also has important social meanings and roles. It is a way for people to communicate, to learn, to come together, to share and to connect to the natural world. In this way it provides great common ground for all of the work that we do.
