Food security vs. food sovereignty

As a follow up to today’s class discussion in ANTH 104-002 about the pit cook, here are the definitions that were on my Powerpoint:

Food security:  the state of having reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food

Food sovereignty: the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems.
