Winners of the 5th Annual Food Sovereignty Prize—an alternative to the World Food Prize—announced today, Aug. 13, 2013, by the US Food Sovereignty Alliance (USFSA).
This year’s Honorees are producing sustainable anti-hunger solutions around the world and stand in sharp contrast to this year’s World Food Prize winners, Monsanto and Syngenta. Food Sovereignty Prize winners are grassroots initiatives that are building solutions to poverty and hunger, and resisting the corporate control of food and trade systems.
Group of 4, Dessalines Brigade/Via Campesina, Haiti & South America
