Under this special programme, The Route To Food Initiative, hbs Nairobi works towards realizing the Right to Food in Kenya, which is provided for in Article 43 of the Constitution: “Every person has the right to be free from hunger, and to have adequate food of acceptable quality.” Our activities aim to influence the political approach to food security and target avenues related to policy development and implementation at national and county-level. Additionally, the initiative relies on creative communications and an influencer-led campaign to promote innovative solutions to the problem of chronic food insecurity. We engage with mainstream and alternative media to shift the emphasis of the debate on hunger and unaffordable or inadequate food to a discussion about food rights.
The Route to Food Alliance is a group of more than 600 women and men who use their personal or professional platforms to champion for the Right to Food in Kenya.
Joining the Route to Food Alliance means you are part of an initiative to realise the Right to Food in Kenya. The reason we exist is to create a network of like-minded people from government, media, civil society, academia, farmers and the private sector who want to work together to end food insecurity in the country.
