Wenonah Hauter, Executive Director of Food & Water Watch, is now the author of the book Foodopoly: The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America!
Foodopoly takes aim at the corporate control of our food system and the inability it creates for farmers to raise healthy crops and the limited choices it provides consumers.
With a significant ecological and carbon footprint, our current food system is grossly unsustainable. Transforming the food system is no small task and requires a real societal shift. If we begin shifting to local, sustainable food sources, we can minimize the destructive footprints associated with the current system’s structure, as well as, provide a platform and space where individual farmers can prosper outside of industrial contracts.
Below is a trailer for Foodopoly. Check it out and get involved!
“In a meticulously researched tour de force, Hauter, the executive director of Food & Water Watch, examines the pernicious effects of consolidation in every sector of the food industry.” Publishers Weekly
