How can you take charge of some of these issues in your own life? Glad you asked! Find some resources on gleaning and food sovereignty below.
Gleaning (v): the time honored tradition of gathering (grain or the like) after the reapers or regular gatherers.
Gleaning is a fantastic way to tackle both food waste and food insecurity in one fell swoop.
Food sovereignty (n): the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems.
Some of the best ways to increase your individual and your community's food sovereignty is to grow your own using sustainable methods, share the excess, and reduce waste wherever possible.
