This chapter introduces the concept of food democracy through which we can analyze a few initiatives that emerge from discussions on food systems in Hawaii. It also presents a short history of Hawaii’s agro-food systems to contextualize the diverse initiatives discussed in the book. We then provide short synopsis of the subsequent chapters and highlight how they open a space for discussion in multiple venues, such as in the legislative arena and in the market place, while being attentive to the broader challenge posed by neoliberal economic policies.
