Synopsis
Our Chance to Right the Food System:

Every five to seven years, Congress passes a little understood legislation called the Farm Bill. To a large extent, the Farm Bill writes the rules and sets the playing field for America’s contemporary food system, determining what we eat, how much it costs, and where it is grown. You may not be happy with what you learn.

With concise and witty analysis, historical framing, dozens of charts, illustrations, and photographs, this newly updated edition of Food Fight deconstructs this complex and fundamental policy and will spur you to action.

YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT

The Farm Bill’s connection to a national obesity epidemic…

Environmental implications of corn-based ethanol expansion…

Who wins and who loses from heavily subsidized industrial agriculture…

The myths of “cheap food”…

45 million Americans who face hunger on a regular basis…

A nationwide food movement based on public health, local farms, and stewardship…

If you eat, pay taxes, care about the health of our children and communities, the fate of family farmers, or our country’s food security, this book is for you.
