Food First is a research institute funded by individuals, bequests, grants, book sales, teaching and public speaking. This broad funding mix allows the organization to take a strong, independent stance on food issues and to amplify the voices of social movements fighting for structural change. Using the lens of food sovereignty and food justice, Food First has worked to expose myths about the causes of global hunger and poverty for 39 years. The Development Director has an opportunity to play a significant role in the US and global food movement.
