We invite you on a journey through the farms, gardens, local markets and kitchens of Africa to learn about the unique, delicious and healthy foods and cultures that belong to this beautiful continent of ours.

Many of you may be feeling uncertain, even lost, about how to eat healthily. There are many theories and interests behind these theories, some genuine but many focused more on their profit than your health. We wrote this Guide with your health and well-being as our only purpose. We are not selling anything… this Barefoot Guide is free to download and offered with love and care for every person, every family and every community in Africa (and beyond).

Eating healthily is not that complicated. You don’t have to be a nutritionist to understand how to do so. New scientific research is simply telling us what many of our grandmothers, and their grandmothers, have always known.


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.
