World Food Day Report

The World Food Day Event hosted by Institute for Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies (PLAAS) (full name) in conjunction with the Centre of Excellence in Food Security (CoE-FS) both housed in the University of the Western Cape was a great success. The event focused of the theme / question; “Whose food system is it anyway” which saw both participants and speakers indulging into key issues and debates regarding food security and the food system as the presentations and discussions encouraged everyone to think about the food system in different ways.

This project is concerned with the human dimensions of food in our current context. The emphasis is on how certain knowledge work to create understandings about food, society and culture; how we can explore complex social identities in relation to food items, food cultures and food preparation or consumption; and how social relationships and struggles are configured around food systems.
