What does feminism have to do with the food you eat?

What would food systems look like if they were based on feminist values?  We interviewed  Diana Lilia Trevilla Espinal from Mexico, a researcher who focuses her work on feminist agroecology and Isa Alvarez from Spain who works for URGENCI in the food sovereignty and agroecology movement locally and globally from a feminist perspective. A feminist food system would place the reproduction of ‘life’, both human and non-human, at the heart of how we make decisions about food, and it would be our collective responsibility to ensure access to healthy food for all, rather than considering food as a commodity determined by market prices. Through Diana’s and Isa’s stories, this episode unpacks the ways in which it is necessary to go beyond gender for food system transformation, what is needed and how it can be done in practice.
