Food is something to be celebrated. Food is essential for life. Food brings people together, breaks down barriers and develops relationships. Yet too many farmers who work so hard to produce the food we all enjoy are trapped in poverty. In rural Africa, where the majority of the population works in agriculture, year after year failed harvests leave millions of food producers struggling to get by. This is why the food community has come together to help farming families grow a brighter future.
Farm Africa is a leading charity specialising in growing agriculture, protecting the environment and developing businesses in rural Africa. It helps farmers like Moses, pictured above, to grow more, sell more and sell for more – not just this harvest, but every harvest.
The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2018 will host Farm Africa’s launch of the Chefs for Change movement. Spearheaded by renowned chefs Joan Roca, Eneko Atxa and Gaggan Anand, Chefs for Change unites the world’s best chefs and the world’s most remote rural communities in transforming lives through sustainable farming.
Chefs for Change will follow the journeys of chefs as they travel out of the kitchen and onto farms in Africa, Asia and Latin America. They will tell the stories of the small-scale producers they meet who dedicate their lives to food production but whose potential is thwarted by poverty, environmental degradation and lack of access to markets.
