“Not everything is meant to travel.
Choose local food.”

New work from Latte Creative in their recognizable style.
It is for Food We Want, an European campaign multistakeholer. It is a campaign to raise information, awareness and lobby to promote small-scale family farming and sustainable agri-food systems as a key solution to tackling hunger, as well as addressing poverty and climate change issues.
The campaign, funded by European Union, is taking place in 8 countries (Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Uk, Kenya, Mozambique, Tanzania), with the objective of sharing ideas, promoting common solutions and stimulating a public debate on the future of food.

According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), we are already producing one and a half times the amount of food needed to provide everyone in the world with an adequate and nutritious diet, yet one in seven people is suffering from hunger.

Great video and article, Marc. I think that choosing local grown foods is a great and much cheaper than the ones from other places. Thanks for the great information.
