निदान फाउंडेशन ने पैरवी और गाँधी शांति प्रतिष्ठान के सहयोग से 30 जुलाई 2011 को 'खाद्य सुरक्षा: सरकार, समाज और मीडिया' पर राष्ट्रीय विमर्श का आयोजन किया. सर्व सेवा संघ की अध्यक्ष और प्रख्यात गाँधीवादी नेता माननीया राधा भट्ट ने राष्ट्रीय विमर्श का उद्घाटन करते हुए कहा की अन्न के उत्पादन के साधनों से लेकर वितरण तक की सारी प्रक्रियाओं को विकेन्द्रित करें. उन्हें सरकारों के हाथों में नहीं, जन समाज व जन समुदाय के हाथों से संचालित होने दें. उत्पादन के साधनों पर इन समुदायों की प्राथमिकता, प्रबंधन व उपयोग करने का अधिकार सुनिश्चित करें. वह अपनी गरीबी स्वयं मिटा सकता है. वह अपने अन्न भंडार संचालित कर सकता है. वह अपने सक्षम बाज़ार खड़े कर सकता है. केवल सरकारें यह भ्रम मिटाएँ कि देश का जीडीपी बढ़ने से गरीबी या भुखमरी मिटेगी.
