Abstract:

"In 1998, when community worker Nick Saul became executive director of The Stop, it was like thousands of other food banks, offering canned handouts in a cramped, dreary, makeshift space. Today it is a thriving, internationally respected Community Food Center with gardens, kitchens, a greenhouse, farmers' markets, and a mission to revolutionize our food system. Their message is spreading: Jamie Oliver told his 750,000 Twitter followers that he'd traveled all over the world and never seen anything like The Stop; Raj Patel, author of Stuffed and Starved, told Alternet he was 'blown away' by this model of an NGO--whose mission is to work for healthy food, strong communities and political empowerment. In a voice that's 'never preachy' (Maclean's), Saul argues that we need a new politics of food in which everyone has a dignified, healthy place at the table."--Publisher description.
