Abstract Food movement advocates articulate a diversity of approaches to address the current food crisis. These approaches resonate with both food security and food sovereignty discourses and range between reform and radical rights-based theories of change. This paper draws from research with urban food advocates in Australia to provide insights into the relations between tactics to change food systems and their resonance with food security and food sovereignty discourses. On the basis of this analysis, the paper concludes that tactics for social change – or the food politics enacted by urban food advocates – both converge and diverse with food security and food sovereignty discourses. These outcomes point to the diversity of approaches for identifying and evaluating pathways for rebuilding food systems.
