But I had a chance to read the book in more detail over the Thanksgiving break and was impressed with how it blends analysis of what's wrong with how we grow, sell, and eat food; with ideas for fixing these problems and stories about how people around the country (and world) are making progress towards food justice. The book is nicely organized following the cycle of food from seed to plate. It travels from the ultra-local (school gardens and neighborhood activism) to global trade.
I also like how 'food justice' bridges a gap between 'foodies'- people concerned with local food, slow food, organics etc who have usually been assumed to be primarily middle class folks with time and money to dedicate to figuring out where there food came from; and lower income people organizing for access to healthy food and for decent jobs in the food economy. The book opens with an account of youth in New Orleans and reminds us that farm workers were among the first to draw attention to the costs and benefits of the food system.
There are good books out there about healthy eating, about the problems associated with industrial agriculture and with fast food, and about a DIY/ grow-it-yourself local food perspective. Food Justice distinguishes itself by weaving these threads together and by reminding us that those with the least often do the most to ensure good food for all.
