The Food Sovereignty Prize 2013. Calls for Nominations

The U.S. Food Sovereignty Alliance is now accepting nominations for the 2013 Food Sovereignty Prize. Since 2009, the Food Sovereignty Prize has been awarded to an organization - rural or urban - that advances the cause of food sovereignty through education and direct, collective action. Prize winners must also have implemented programs and policies that prioritize the leadership of women, indigenous peoples, people of color, migrant workers and other food providers in the global food movement.

The 2013 Fifth Annual Food Sovereignty Prize will be awarded by the U.S. Food Sovereignty Alliance (USFSA), a US-based collaboration of food justice, anti-hunger, labor, environmental, faith-based, and family farming and fishing organizations. The USFSA works to connect local and national struggles for food justice with the international movement for food sovereignty to uphold the right to food as a public good and basic human necessity.

The Deadline for Nominations is May 20.
