From reconceptualizing food banks as places where people are passive recipients of handouts that do very little to address poverty and hunger, to centers where people learn new skills and are engaged community members changing their relationship to food and food security, this book discusses the myriad results of treating food as a market commodity and inspiring visions of transformation.
Join author Nick Saul to discuss what others are saying is "An impassioned account of how to create food systems that foster independence and eliminate the indignities of charity...If you want to know what today’s food movement is really about—and why it is anything but elitist—read this book."
WHEN: Tuesday, Oct. 1, 3:30-4:30 p.m.
