The Institute for Food and Development Policy (FOOD FIRST) is a nonprofit research and education center, which, since its founding in 1975, has been dedicated to identifying the root causes of hunger, poverty, and environmental degradation in the United States and around the world. Financed by thousands of members, with modest support from foundations and churches, FOOD FIRST speaks with a strong, independent voice, free of ideological formulas and vested interests.
In over 50 countries and 20 languages, FOOD FIRST provides a wide array of educational tools - books, articles, films, and curricula for elementary schools and high schools - to lay the groundwork for a more democratically run society that will meet the needs of all.
