A2: Book Review

The New York Times publishes a review of “Fair Food: Growing a Healthy, Sustainable Food System for All” by Oran B. Hesterman, founder and head of the Ann Arbor-based nonprofit Fair Food Network. From the review: ”The author displays a wide-ranging knowledge of production, consumption, natural resources and public policy. He also writes about reform efforts with contagious energy and palpable authority. (I spent part of Memorial Day setting in motion a small buying club to purchase humanely raised and slaughtered chickens directly from farmers west of Boston.) But the book leaves some supply issues largely unaddressed. Can America and other nations possibly produce enough food from smaller, environmentally sustainable sources to feed the world’s growing population?” [Source]
