2016 US Food Soveriengty Prize Celebration

  • Town Hall Seattle 1119 8th Avenue Seattle, WA, 98101 United States

Celebrate the 8th Annual Food Sovereignty Prize, awarded by the US Food Sovereignty Alliance to frontline organizations transforming our food system by building power and creating real community-led solutions to poverty, hunger and climate change! Join activists, organizers and community-based organizations from Seattle and the country for a ceremony and reception to honor this year’s winners:  Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa and Farmworkers Association of Florida. 

In the face of increased corporate agribusiness interests threatening their food systems, this year’s honorees address critical needs for farmers and farmworkers by strengthening alliances and advancing food sovereignty through the dissemination of agroecological practices. The Prize – an alternative to the Big Ag-sponsored World Food Prize - will be awarded in Seattle for the first time since its 2009 inception.
