“Intended as a practical guide for community food activists who want to take the locavore movement across race, class, and city lines, this book illuminate ways in which consumers can become "engaged citizens." Especially important (and rare) is Hesterman's willingness to work constructively with corporate giants like Costco and the Kellogg Foundation….The dedication to social justice is clear, genuine, and logically argued as a food issue. A helpful and hefty final chapter of "Resources" provides readers with a comprehensive national listing of organizations to join, support, or replicate.”
New York House Magazine, June, 27, 2011
“A must read for those who wish to go from conscious consumer to food activist.”
New York Times (Business Day), June 4, 2011
"[Hesterman] displays a wide-ranging knowledge of production, consumption, natural resources and public policy. He also writes about reform efforts with contagious energy and palpable authority...this is an important, accessible book on a crucial subject. Food for thought and action."
Serious Eats, July 29, 2011
“Hesterman's upbeat outlook and gentle push toward activism inspired me to further my own engagement. His book is one of the best I've read on how we as individuals can be involved in the future of America's food system."
A fantastic book filled with good writing and very useful and important information.
Most importantly, the book offers a compelling case for all citizens to be involved in public policy advocacy to improve government policies and economic systems.
For people who like to read magazine articles like I do, reading this book was similar to reading interesting articles in the New Yorker and other magazine.
