Food First: Institute for Food and Development Policy

The Institute for Food and Development Policy (aka Food First) is an Oakland-based think tank that focuses on issues of ending global hunger, poverty, and environmental degradation by utilizing research, analysis and advocacy to help develop democratically controlled, sustainable local food systems. One of Food First's active projects is the East Bay Urban Farmer Field Schools, which bring together urban farmers and gardeners in the San Francisco East Bay region to share agro-ecological knowledge and build grassroots capacity to develop their own agriculture and sustainable food systems.
