Food Sovereignty

* The right to choose the type and source of food you want for you and your family without government interference;

* the right to privately contract with a local farmer to produce your own food;

* a term coined by Via Campesina in 1996 to refer to a policy framework claiming the right of peoples to define their own food, agriculture, livestock and fisheries systems, in contrast to having food subject to market forces.
