Founded in 1975, Food First/Institute for Food and Development Policy works to change consciousness, awakening people to the possibility of their own power to bring about social change. We implement our strategy through research, analysis and education for action to inspire and mobilize people and their organizations to transform systems and institutions that perpetuate those injustices. The goals of our research, analysis, education and advocacy are to: explode myths and expose root causes; identify obstacles to change and address ways to remove them; provide tools for change and address dilemmas associated with change; and identify, evaluate and publicize successful and promising alternatives.
