THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER "The Stop is an inspiring true story about how a low-income neighborhood used good food to take charge of its community-it's a great lesson for all of us." -Jamie Oliver In 1998, when community worker Nick Saul became executive director of The Stop, it was like thousands of other food banks, offering canned handouts in a cramped, dreary, makeshift space. Today it is a thriving, internationally respected Community Food Center with gardens, kitchens, a greenhouse, farmers' markets, and a mission to revolutionize our food system. Their message is spreading: Jamie Oliver told his 750,000 Twitter followers that he'd traveled all over the world and never seen anything like The Stop; Raj Patel, author of Stuffed and Starved , told Alternet he was "blown away" by this model of an NGO-whose mission is to work for healthy food, strong communities and political empowerment. In a voice that's "never preachy" ( Maclean's ), Saul argues that we need a new politics of food in which everyone has a dignified, healthy place at the table. The Stop is a "riveting" personal story (Naomi Klein) about overcoming obstacles and creating lasting change.

Andrea Curtis?s critically acclaimed Into the Blue: Family Secrets and The Search for a Great Lakes Shipwreck (Random House) won the Edna Staebler Award for Creative Non-Fiction. Her writing has also appeared in Toronto Life, Chatelaine, Canadian Geographic, Explore, Utne Reader, The Globe & Mail, Today's Parent, cbc.ca/arts and others. This is her first work for a younger audience.
