Uniting Agriculture and Medicine to Support Food Sovereignty and Health Justice for All
Agriculture broadly defined for a diversity of foodways to include farmers, seed savers, gardeners, fishers, foragers, ranchers, subsistence hunters, wildcrafters, pastoralists, forest producers, and more.
Medicine broadly defined for a diversity of healthways to include all those involved in health and healing.
Join us in growing a global network of farmers, seed savers, gardeners, fishers, foragers, ranchers, healers, subsistence hunters, healthcare providers, hospitals, clinics, educators, researchers, activists, schools, academic centers, students, wild-crafters, cooks, consumers pastoralists, forest producers, and more who are united in a vision of food sovereignty and health justice for all. Our intent is to gather information, build bridges, advance conversations, strengthen engagement, highlight community-led initiatives, and amplify efforts to energize an equitable and inclusive global movement.
Food as Medicine Global was created to increase awareness about and engagement in positive food system solutions. Many of our current world challenges have a common root: how food is produced, accessed, processed, controlled and consumed. Healthier soil and water leads to healthier food, healthier people, a healthier ecosystem, and a healthier climate. Increasing access to nourishing food leads to healthier individuals, communities, and a healthier planet for all.Read more
