Philippine Network of Food Security Programmes

PNFSP is the result of the National Conference on Food Security held in Tagaytay City from August 29 to 30, 2005 with the participation of 25 organizations from all over the country. Aware of the dismal state of food security in the Philippines, the participants resolved to unify and dedicate their collective effort to addressing and upholding the people’s right to food.


As advocates of sustainable development, network members respond to issues that go beyond the quantity and quality of food. 

The network addresses core issues that threaten food security including conversion of agricultural lands, landlessness, import liberalization, feudal relations of production, backward means of production, migration and urban poverty, unequal food distribution, and generically engineered food. The network also recognizes political instability, natural disasters, and development aggression as factors that worsen food insecurity.

PNFSP commits to advance the right to food of the most disadvantaged sector towards food self-sufficiency.


PNFSP envisions self –determining and self -reliant society where people have secured their right to safe, sufficient and nutritious food.
