The Jesuit Forum For Social Faith And Justice is hosting a panel discussion on how the food sovereignty movement seeks to address questions of social justice, food security, and ecological regeneration on Thursday, December 3, from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. ET.

Leslie Campbell (FoodShare Toronto) and Nettie Wiebe (organic farmer and activist, Saskatchewan) will discuss how food sovereignty plays a key role in addressing questions of social and ecological justice by focusing on:

  • food for people,
  • building knowledge and skills,
  • working with and regenerating nature,
  • valuing food providers,
  • localizing food systems, restoring local control (while challenging corporate dominance), and
  • treating food as a sacred gift of life to be shared fairly.
