Description
Here the longtime executive director of the nonprofit Hartford Food System exposes America's dangerous dietary split, between patrons of food pantries, bodegas, and convenience stores to the more comfortable classes who increasingly seek out organic and local products. Leavening lessons from his own experience with surprisingly witty observations, Mark Winne ultimately envisions realistic partnerships in which family farms and impoverished communities come together to get healthy, locally produced food onto everyone's table.

"By combining his stories of his deep personal experience as an activist with keen insights into strategies for addressing food injustice, Winne fills a gap in the growing literature on good food, why it matters, and how to insure that everyone everywhere has access to it. Plus, the book is a fun read. Winne's stories make me want to meet him down at the local farmers' market and then join him afterward for a cold beer."—Anna Lappé
