Food Funchayat

24th December 2015, Jaipur, Rajasthan

A step towards celebrating traditional good food practices and enabling farmers in India to achieve food sovereignty was made by way of organizing a good-food festival called Food Funchayat. This daylong event was organized by CECOEDECON, Kisan Sewa Samiti and PAIRVI in collaboration with Oxfam India on 24 Dec, 2015 at Shilki Doongri in Chaksu, Jaipur. 
The fair extended an opportunity to civil society, agricultural NGOs, agriculture research and extension centers, rural and tribal development organizations and above all the government to revisit indigenous farming knowledge and traditional food practices of small and marginal farmers and tribal agrarian communities.
