Commitment to Action

Make Food, Not War

Commitment by

Souk el Tayeb

In 2010, Souk el Tayeb committed to celebrate the food and traditions that unite communities and support small-scale farmers and producers as well as the culture of sustainable agriculture in Lebanon. Through this approach, farmers and producers find a common ground around the land, agriculture, and food production; are productive in rural areas; gain social and economic recognition; and unite around a project and a dream of making food, not war. This commitment fosters innovative, environmentally sound, economically viable, and socially responsible actions by supporting small scale farmers and producers; contributing to local community development initiatives; carrying out advocacy, research, and education about food, traditions, and heritage; and encouraging organic and healthy lifestyles. Souk el Tayeb hopes to bring together people of different regions, origins, and beliefs around a shared goal.
