Food Security Conferences

Every day, the world produces twice the amount of 
food needed to nourish everyone. 
 
Yet, every day, one billion people are hungry; 
most of them are farmers.  
Who has power in the food system?  Who doesn't?
What are people doing to create a more fair and sustainable food system?
What can we all do to make a real difference today?
