How the Fight for Good Food Transformed A Community and Inspired A MovementPaperback - 2013
In 1998, when Nick Saul became executive director of The Stop, the little urban food bank was like thousands of other cramped, dreary, makeshift spaces, a last-hope refuge where desperate people could stave off hunger. It is now a thriving, internationally respected Community Food Centre with gardens, kitchens, a greenhouse, farmers markets and a mission to revolutionise the food system. In telling the remarkable story of The Stop, Saul and Curtis argue that a new politics of food is needed, one in which everyone has a dignified, healthy place at the table.
