Full description for Reclaiming Our Food
Over the last decade, a food revolution has taken place: More and more people are turning to local sources for the food they eat. Whole communities are participating in farming, gardening, and networking initiatives to help more people access fresh, healthy food that doesn't arrive on a train, plane, or tractor-trailer. In "Reclaiming Our Food", author Tanya Denckla Cobb offers an in-depth analysis of how groups throughout the United States are creating sustainable ways to provide local food. Readers will learn about the motivating vision and people behind each organization. They will also find advice and guidance on everyday issues such as distribution, working with at-risk populations, fostering community, providing therapeutic assistance, and building the infrastructure to maintain new initiatives. Powerful photo essays by photographer Jason Houston tell the stories of twelve more projects, including a community-supported fishery in Beaufort, North Carolina, that distribute locally harvested fish to its members; a foraging organization in San Francisco whose deliveries might include anything from wild mushrooms to acorn flour; and, a beef cooperative that markets natural products from several farmers under one brand name to build recognition.
