The Consultation organized in collaboration with Gandhi Peace Foundation and Nidan Foundation sought to explore social responsibility and responsibility of media in ensuring food security.

Radha Bahan, Secretary of GPF, inaugurated the Consultation and said that while the primary responsibility of making food available to people (esp. underprivileged population) remains with the government, however, it does not absolve communities of their own responsibilities to ensure food to poor, and that media also bears equal responsibility to ensure that one hunger death must not go unreported.” She also distributed indigenous seeds among the participants with the message that they should ensure that these seeds multiply and ensure seed and food sovereignty.
