NI533 - Who gets to eat? - September/October 2021

As social movements build a critical grassroots response to a UN food summit this September, this magazine reflects on who gets to eat, why – and the urgent actions needed to rebalance food systems in the interests of the hungry. This issue is the concluding chapter of the Food Justice files, a year-long New Internationalist focus on the stories of people in sub-Saharan Africa who too often go unheard: from the forest gardeners of Ethiopia to herders in drought-stricken Somaliland.

Imagine you live by the Atlantic Ocean, close enough to hear the waves breaking. In those waters swim small fish. They are a superfood: rich in the nutrients needed by your bodies – and those of your children.

But these fish are destined for the diets of others. They will be turned into food for farmed fish – like salmon – and livestock, which will in-turn nourish wealthy people inland or abroad, perhaps even their pets.

This reality, one experienced by coastal communities across the Global South, was revealed by environmental social scientist Christina Hicks, who is a contributing editor for this edition. Her research sparked the Food Justice files, a year-long New Internationalist focus on the stories of people in sub-Saharan Africa who too often go unheard: from the forest gardeners of Ethiopia’s to pastoralists in drought-stricken Somaliland.

As the project comes to a close, this Big Story takes us to the beaches of Senegal where we hear from women fish workers whose jobs and way of life are threatened by a deeply inequitable exchange. As social movements build a critical grassroots response to a UN food summit this September, this magazine reflects back on who gets to eat, why – and the urgent actions needed to rebalance food systems in the interests of the hungry.
