518 Valencia St, San Francisco, California 94110
The People’s Harvest Forum is a yearly grassroots event on radical food politics that aims to inspire and empower both new and seasoned activists in working towards food justice and food sovereignty.

The theme for this year is «resources» — resources that corporations usurp and monopolize, and resources that communities defend and reclaim. What resources can help us build a People's Food System? We will explore land, seeds, popular education and much more.

This forum is the only event of the sort to also include animal liberation in its core values, and to provide a platform to veganic food growers to present their vision for sustainable food systems.
