Commentaries: Catholic call for a new food system

This series of commentaries are suitable for reproduction in diocesan newspapers, other publications or online blogs that are looking for faith-based perspectives on our food system. These brief commentaries are written in a way to introduce you to the complexities and problems of our current global food system.

Much greater detail is provided in our Food Security & Economic Justice study guide.

How do we secure food for all? How do we fix a broken economy that makes poverty and hunger persist?
