WhyHunger knows its important to amplify the voices of the people working to regain control of their communities' food. We believe that telling one's story is not only an act of reclaiming in the face of the dominant food narrative of this country, but also an affirmation that the small acts of food sovereignty happening across the country add up to a powerful, vital collective.
