Kamal Mouzawak: "Make Food Not War"
Kamal Mouzawak created the first farmers’ market in Beirut, Souk el-Tayeb, which preserves food traditions and the culture of sustainable agriculture in Lebanon. Kamal is working to protect the interests of local small farmers and producers in Lebanon, enabling them to sell their products directly at the market, thus ensuring a fair price for their goods.
Today, Souk el-Tayeb has grown to include regional festivals, school programmes, a newsletter, Dekenet Souk el Tayeb and a coop kitchen/restaurant where a different cook/producer prepares the daily lunch.
Kamal has been recognised as an Ashoka Arab World Fellow for his work.
