Guåhan Sustainable Culture
Educate. Cultivate. Nourish.
The core tenants of food sovereignty are for a community to not only have access to food, but for the community to know where their food comes from and to have food that is culturally relevant. In GSC’s interpretation, we believe that for Guam to be more food sovereign, we must support local farmers who are growing locally-loved foods by purchasing and consuming mostly local produce. In order to expand the cultural education aspect of our “Supporting Farmers, Sustaining Families” initiative, GSC has created this open resource for people to find out more information about local produce, the many recipes that incorporates the produce into everyday meals and their significance to Guam’s culture and society. By providing a way for people to explore more about their food and the people that produce them, we hope that people can find a greater connection to their food and strive to further food sovereignty on island.
