Financing Food Justice

Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is 

 

This Food Day, members of the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility are seeking to highlight the role of the private sector and the investment community in finding and funding sustainable solutions that will ensure the human right to food is protected for all. 

We have developed a campaign around the theme Financing Food Justice: Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

ICCR members are institutional investors in the world’s leading corporations, including food producers, manufacturers, retailers and media companies, and have been engaging their management on a host of food-related issues to ensure a safe, sustainable and just food system. Beginning on October 16th, World Food Day and ending October 24th Food Day in the U.S., we posted a daily reflection about food. The reflections in this series were written by ICCR staff, members and representatives from our NGO allies to illustrate the importance of corporate responsibility and ethical investment on the many facets of food justice around the world.

We invite you to share the anthology of reflections above with your networks this week as a way to commemorate 2014 Food Day  and to underscore the need for us all to do our share to ensure that the human right to safe, sustainable and adequate food and nutrition is met throughout the year.
