Mid-Manhattan Library

 One of the nation’s leading healthy food advocates believes that the local food movement is not enough to solve America’s food crisis. This illustrated lecture explores the public health debacle that has been created. The author argues that agribusinesses, such as ConAgra, Kraft, and Tyson, have hurt small farmers, marginalized the health of crops, and limited consumer choices.  She presents her thoughts on how America's agricultural system should be reformed.

With Wenonah Hauter, the author of "Foodopoly: The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America," and the executive director of Food & Water Watch.
