The AFSA “MY FOOD IS AFRICAN” Campaign
This Barefoot Guide will be launched on the occasion of #WorldFoodDay2022, this Sunday 16 October 2022, along with the AFSA campaign: “MY FOOD IS AFRICAN.”
MY FOOD IS AFRICAN campaign was necessitated by the crisis of an increasing number of people in Africa, particularly in rapidly growing urban areas, who are disconnected from the food production system.
As the effects of biodiversity loss and climate change worsen across the globe and in Africa, the need for healthy, equitable, efficient, resilient, and culturally diverse food and agricultural systems and practices has never been greater.
Through this campaign, the Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa is working to strengthen the citizen voice in order to demand nutritious and healthy food.
The citizen-led campaign, which will take place in ten African countries, will include direct interactions with mothers, community leaders, and policymakers, as well as social and mainstream media outreach.
Please register for the webinar at the My Food Is African Campaign virtual launch and hear some of the continent's most committed food sovereignty champions and practitioners speak about the crisis and set the tone for a three-month campaign.
