Aotearoa needs a community led, government enabled, values based food strategy. This has been a consistent message from us since 2020.

We have taken every opportunity to forward this cause and yet our access, health, sovereignty and ability to afford good food continues to diminish.

For that reason, with the support of some friends, we’ve launched a government petition calling for a dedicated strategy. We believe NOW is the moment to stand together and push. Please join us. Sign the petition here. Find more information and others supporting this cause here.

Interestingly, as the petition went live last night, the People’s Food Plan launched in Australia. A similar call for a community-led response that reflects the values of all Australians. We are not alone in our thinking, but we need to stand together now in Aotearoa.

Please sign the petition.
