FOOD MANIFESTO

Conscious of the societal challenges our current food system is posing, both to planet regeneration and to community resilience, REBUNDANCE invited a very broad and diverse group of stakeholders to hold a complex and meaningful conversation about the future of food. This Food Manifesto is a result of more than two years of monthly meetings of the Circle for Food Evolution.

This manifesto rises from the belief that there is a way to broad planetary prosperity that starts from our individual and collective food choices. While we are able to choose what we eat, we can influence our own wellbeing and that of the planet.

Our intention throughout this manifesto is to support personal and societal transformation through inspiration underlined by scientific research.

Relevant fact:
Did you know that the human sensory system can distinguish over 100,000 different flavors? Between the 5/6 basic tastes and taking into consideration intensity levels and mixtures, there’s a practically endless amount of flavours to experience throughout our lifetimes.

Our choices need to bring us pleasure, health, connection and well being and we propose the following 7 principles to make the best choices:



By being actively aware of the whole life-cycle of food, from seed to sharing to stomach we can own our life path, and the physical, emotional, energetic and intellectual dimensions of our body.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN IN PRACTICE?
That every day we need to go for the healthiest food option we have at hand.

Before we decide what we are going to eat, ask:

  • Where is it from? How was it grown? Is the price fair?
  • Is it fresh? Is it processed? Can I recognise the ingredients?
  • Is it homemade? Was it prepared with love? Is it accessible to those who need it?

We propose to take an activist stance, to be constructive and inclusive, so everyone may gain access to healthy and organic food. We need to ensure the Planet’s regeneration capacity is not hampered.

ALL LIVING BEINGS NEED TO HAVE A LIFE WITH DIGNITY.


WE NEED TO ACT

FOR ME, FOOD IS
HEALING

(our individual choices enhance longevity)

FOR ALL OF US, FOOD IS
CELEBRATING & CONNECTING

(our collective choices shape the food supply system)

FOR ALL OF US & THE PLANET,
FOOD IS REGENERATING

(all of our food choices determine the Planet’s regeneration capacity) 


We got together regularly for the past 2 years to discuss the future of food.

WHO ARE WE?

From a Mediterranean kitchen chef to an amateur of vegan food, from a psychologist specialized in child obesity to a volunteer in a network that redistributes food, from an entrepreneur supplying live chlorophyll to a specialist in social intervention, from a raw food chef to a researcher and zero waste activist…
