Voices of food sovereignty (book)
This new book praises the farmers and fishermen trying to create a food system that values quality over quantity, and communities and the environment over the corporate bottom-line. Town-by-town, these front-line players are working to change how food is provided, processed and distributed. "Food Voices" introduces the concept of food sovereignty and highlights farmers and fishermen pursuing the local food movement with that framework. The stories of their struggles and triumphs are presented in a comprehensive book to strengthen and enhance the local food movement. Over 80 interviews collected from the United States, Ecuador, Venezuela, Brazil and Haiti indicate that food sovereignty is spontaneously growing stronger throughout the Americas. Thirty of those interviews are presented in "Food Voices."
