Summary
"In Closing the Food Gap, food activist and journalist Mark Winne poses questions too often overlooked in our current conversations around food: What about those people who are not financially able to make conscientious choices about where and how to get food? And in a time of rising rates of both diabetes and obesity, what can we do to make healthier foods available for everyone?" "To address these questions, Winne tells the story of how America's food gap has widened since the 1960s, when domestic poverty was "rediscovered," and how communities have responded with a slew of strategies and methods to narrow the gap, including community gardens, food banks, and farmers' markets. The story, however, is not only about hunger in the land of plenty and the organized efforts to reduce it; it is also about doing that work against a backdrop of ever-growing American food affluence and gastronomical expectations."--Jacket
Summary
A study of the food crisis in America looks at the dietary split between the affluent and the poor, examines how Americans of all classes get their food, assesses current policies designed to alleviate the food gap, and calls for the establishment of realistic partnerships between family farms and impoverished communities to address the problem
