What if change started with food? The Social Gastronomy Movement (SGM) is a global network of interconnected local communities that uses the power of food as a tool for social change. They cultivate connections, collaborations and partnerships that strengthen our individual and collective capacity to co-create an equitable future, inclusive society and healthy planet. Social Gastronomy works to address social inequality, to improve nutrition, and to engage people to leverage their skills for social good. It encompasses all levels of the food production chain—from sowing and harvesting crops, to preparing meals, to utilizing food waste—to create social change, transforming the lives of underprivileged populations and victims of social exclusion or marginalization.
What we love about them:
Reframing food as a social connector and providing resources to empower and connect communities, strengthening food solidarity.

In the aftermath of a disaster, adaptation is key. This week, that meant meal delivery by wheelbarrow! Due to heavy rains, we could not drive to get meals to the community of Sandy Bay, so residents met us to pick up food & water to take back to families in need. #ChefsForSVG https://t.co/y4FtuHgiSu
We are essential parts of our food system working alongside the Earth and others for global change! https://t.co/4OGhTAKost
