Description:

From the War on Poverty to new farmers'markets, a food expert tackles America's dangerous dietary split Closing the Food Gap tells the story of how we get our food: from poor people at food pantries, bodegas, and convenience stores to the more comfortable classes who increasingly seek out organic and local products. Calling largely on his own experience in this field, mixing in surprisingly witty observations, Winne ultimately envisions realistic partnerships in which family farms and impoverished communities come together to address their continuing struggles. "A calm, well-reasoned and soft-spoken call to arms." -Publishers Weekly "Fearless, intelligent, and surprisingly funny." -Gwyneth Doland, Sante Fe Reporter "It's heartening to find a book that successfully blends a passion for sustainable living with compassion for the poor." -Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, author of Harvest for Hope "Reading Closing the Food Gap should make everyone want to advocate for food systems that will feed the hungry, support local farmers, and promote community democracy-all at the same time. I want all my students to read this beautifully written and important book." -Marion Nestle, author of What to Eat
