What a book! Quite thought provoking. Winne wants us to "reset the table in the Land of Plenty." How do we close the gap between those of us eating better, more nutritious local foods and others of us who have to get on a bus to get to a supermarket?

“‘Closing the Food Gap’ is a deeply moving account of Mark Winne’s long career as an advocate for policies that will ensure adequate nutrition for the poor.

"Reading this book should make everyone want to advocate for food systems that will feed the hungry, support local farmers, and promote community democracy-all at the same time.”

-Marion Nestle, Paulette Goddard professor of nutrition, food studies, and public health at New York University, and author of Food Politics and What to Eat
