Food Sovereignty

Many people who travel to Guatemala with BTS return to Canada realizing that food is political and that “Think Global, Act Local” can and does have real impacts. Food sovereignty not only encompasses food sustainability and security but implies that justice – that is, who controls the food, the seeds, the land – is an inherent part of the food production process. BTS supports local communities in Guatemala that work for land justice, promote, save and plant generations of heritage and local seeds and speak out to defend the rights of local communities to have safe and healthy food production.

Check out some blog entries and websites of those connected with BTS who work on food sovereignty issues in Canada and in Guatemala.
