Foodopoly Presentation/Discussion @ Inkwood Books, Feb. 23, 2 p.m.
Admin Mon Jan 28, 2013 @ 10:53AM
Join Slow Food Tampa Bay for a presentation and discussion of the new book "Foodopoly" by Wenonah Hauter on Saturday, Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. at Inkwood Books, 216 S Armenia Ave, Tampa. Slow Food members receive a discount on the book. 
 
Wenonah is the executive director of Food & Water Watch, the D.C.-based non-profit organization focused on sustainable agriculture, family farmers, corporate and government accountability relating to our food and water. She has worked and written extensively on food, water, energy, and environmental issues at the national, state, and local levels and owns a working farm in The Plains, Virginia. Food and Water Watch is currently involved in the multi-state "Let Me Decide" Campaign to get genetically engineered food labeled. 
 
Steve Gliessman,  Professor Emeritus of Agroecology,  UC-Santa Cruz says, "Foodopoly is a meticulously documented account of how we have lost control of our food system, as well as a roadmap for taking it back. We must respond to this call to action."
 
In "Foodopoly," she presents the shocking account of how agricultural policy, has been hijacked by lobbyists,  driving out independent farmers and food processors in favor of the likes of Cargill, Tyson, Kraft, and ConAgra. She demonstrates impacts rippling far and wide including economic stagnation in rural communities at home and famines in poor countries overseas. Wenonah presents a solution everyone needs to hear -- solving this crisis requires a complete structural shift and a grassroots movement to reshape our food system from seed to table.
