FoodGuerrilla

 

FoodGuerrilla promotes healthy, honest and sustainable food. They do so by connecting farmers, consumers, food experts and other food lovers. Their motto: a positive and lasting change of our food system can only be achieved by working together.

 

FoodGuerrilla is located in the Netherlands and currently represents a network of over 150 food initiatives. Together they organize actions and campaigns for good, healthy and sustainably produced food. Additionally FoodGuerilla also offers coaching, training, meetings and advice to anyone that is interested in setting up sustainable food initiatives.

 

FoodGuerrilla helps to organize food actions and campaigns by generating media attention and by bringing  kindred spirits together. An overview of the more than 150 mainly Dutch member organizations affiliated with the FoodGuerrilla can be found here: http://www.foodguerrilla.nl/deelnemers/ 

 

FoodGuerrilla stimulates urban agriculture, ecological agriculture, promotes local and seasonal products, strengthens the local economy through local networks, works with farmers, growers and consumers, promotes food sharing, battles against food waste and aims to reduce the distance between consumer and producer (so people know where the food comes from and how it is produced)

 

According to FoodGuerrilla working towards a better and more sustainable world starts at home in the kitchen. It all depends on the choices we make: do we go for organic or sprayed, sustainable or wasteful, vegetarian or meat, imported or local, super cheap or fair priced, produced anonymously or fair trade? Our eating habits are strongly connected with society and the environment and FoodGuerrilla hopes that people become aware of this intimate connection.
