I'm so excited that our Executive Director's book is being released today! Foodopoly is the next "must read" for anyone who cares about where their food comes from. I'm buying the book for a few people on my holiday list, and I hope you'll do the same.
Here are a few places to get your copy today:
Foodopoly is a shocking account of how agricultural policy has been hijacked by lobbyists, driving out independent farmers and small food processors in favor of the likes of Cargill, Tyson and ConAgra. Wenonah tells this story from her perspective as the co-owner of a small organic CSA farm, and she interviewed dozens of family farmers throughout the country to get their first-hand accounts of how industrial agribusiness is destroying farms and our rural communities.
I think I know a lot about our food system, but Foodopoly dives deeper than any book I've seen before, and I'm so proud that it was written by our Executive Director!
Bill McKibben called Foodopoly "a shocking and powerful reminder of the distance between our image of the family farmer and the corporate agribusiness reality."
Publishers Weekly described it as "a meticulously researched tour de force." Even if you think you know how big agriculture controls almost every aspect of our food system, you'll find this book eye-opening.
We're planning to use this incredible book as a launching pad to take on the biggest challenges that face our food. Wenonah will be hitting the road soon to talk to people across the country about Foodopoly, and to elevate the issues that our farming communities face. This will be a great opportunity to lay the groundwork for how we can turn it all around, and protect our family farmers and local food.
I hope you'll buy the book and share it with your friends and family today:
