Food crisis appeal

2 June, 2008

Seeing as we have talked a little about the global food crisis on this blog I thought I’d draw attention to an appeal by avaaz.org to try to influence an upcoming UN summit on the subject.  Included in their webpage is this video, in which it is stated that currently 90% of Sierra Leoneans are unable to afford the currently inflated price of a bag of rice.  Food for thought indeed.

    Anthropology News is going to do a theme issue on food security:

    CFP: Food Security
    AN is seeking contributions for a thematic issue on food security to be published in October 2008. As the concept of food security is multifaceted, articles can address a wide variety of issues, including food safety and regulation; the stability, loss and transformation of food traditions; food shortages and international aid; agribusiness and food production; genetic engineering; biofuels and many other topics. For additional details and submission guidelines, see: http://www.aaanet.org/issues/anthronews/CFP-Food-Security.cfm.
