“Farms to Feed Us CIC is a social enterprise which came together at the beginning of the Covid-19 lock-down to respond to the livelihood and food security crises. We expanded our objectives as we recognise the need to address long term structural issues in our food systems. We wish to nurture a regenerative food future where the harsh realities are highlighted along with the beauty and joy of agroecology. We envision Farms to Feed Us to be about fairness and justice to humanity and ecology – the men, women and ecosystems that feed us”
