This is the Food First's mission statement, and to find out exactly what Food First is doing to surmount the problem of hunger, visitors should take a look at "Programs" found on the menu on the left side of the page. They have a three-pronged approach composed of the following programs: "Building Local Agri-Foods Systems", "Democratizing Developments: Land, Resources and
Markets", and "Forging Food Sovereignty with Farmers". The issues that Food First is tackling with their three-pronged approach are also on the left side of the page under the heading "Issues", and include "Challenging Industrial Agriculture and the Green Revolution", "Globalization, Trade and
International Financial Institutions", and "Social Movements". Each of the issues is explained by articles from various sources, as well as reports, documentaries, and radio interviews. Visitors shouldn't miss checking out
the "Publications" section, a link to which can be found at the top of the
page. "Books", "Development Reports", "Fact Sheets", and "Policy Briefs" are just some of the types of publications that can be perused.
