Regional Food Economies - Changing the food system to be better, not bigger.

To move towards a food system that nourishes both people and our planet requires significant changes to our food culture, the food economy and its governance. Lucy posits that the food system needs to be better not bigger, and this can be achieved via circular food economies that revalue food, reduce waste and surplus production and reuse as much as possible. Feedback Global are a charity seeking to bring about this through a unique combination of campaigning and advocacy, citizen engagement and pilot programmes. Feedback work on campaigns around food citizenship, food commons and new food economies, piloting alternatives to the globalised, financialised food system.
