NFFCNFFC In the News

The Daily Yonder reported on the US Food Sovereignty Alliance’s 2022 Food Sovereignty Prize, which serves to counter the World Food Prize, first awarded in 1987 to highlight the Green Revolution’s means to increase global food supplies. Darnella Winston of the Mississippi Association of Cooperatives (a member of the Federation of Southern Cooperatives/Land Assistance Fund, domestic prize winner in 2015) notes the “mounting evidence of the failures of this model.” NFFC’s senior policy associate, Antonio Tovar, says that the two prize recipients – Western Organization of Resource Councils (US domestic) and Food Sovereignty Ghana (international) – “prioritize people over profit, which is key to food sovereignty”.
