    The Importance of the Right to Food

    The UN has set out a series of economic, social and cultural rights, including: The rights to adequate food, adequate housing, education, health, social security, water and sanitation, work, and the right to take part in cultural life... A legal right places responsibilities on public institutions to help us when we are having difficulties meeting our basic needs, and enables individuals to take action to fix any barriers to our enjoyment of that right. It also allows us to change the narrative from whether food should be a right; to how we ensure the right to food is upheld.
