(Redirected to Food First article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Food First, also known as the Institute for Food and Development Policy, is a nonprofit organization based in Oakland, California, USA. Founded in 1975 by Frances Moore Lappé and Joseph Collins, it describes itself as a "people's think tank and education-for-action center".[1]

Food First supports a "bottom-up" approach to solving world hunger, asserting the ability of all countries to feed their own people if they focus on agriculture for subsistence rather than for export.

Food First strongly opposes the policies of they deem to be free market institutions such as the World Trade Organization, World Bank, and International Monetary Fund. As of 2004, it is active in the campaign against the proposed Free Trade Area of the Americas. this is a bad bad bad bad bda site aahahahh!from ashley dutchak!
