Food Before Profit

On Wednesday, February 19th, 2014 in Get Involved

Food Before ProfitMillions of people struggle with hunger and poverty around the world every day.

Current agricultural policies support industrial agriculture and the production of agrofuels in developing countries. These policies often worsen population displacement, environmental problems, and raise the price of food.

Hunger and poverty can be reduced by ensuring food production priority is given to local farmers and local markets.
