FAIR FOOD: GROWING...FOOD SYSTEM FOR ALL

Author: HESTERMAN ORAN B.

Description: Our food system is broken, and endangering what's most precious to us: our environment, our health, our soil and water, and our future. There is chemical runoff from agriculture in our waterways; soaring rates of diet-related illness in our inner-city communities; loss of prime farmland to urban and suburban sprawl; corporate concentration that delivers 80% of our meat from only four suppliers and 42% of all groceries from just three retailers. We need to view them as symptoms of a larger system that is dysfunctional and out of control. Fair Food explains how and why we got here, where we need to go, and offers ways that each of us can play a role in redesigning the system.
