Good Food is a must read! It is full of useful information that I have not seen elsewhere. Don't let the faith aspect scare you away. There is so much good information in this that you won't want to put it down. - Beth Bond (read fuller review by Beth)
Christians in the United States are on a quest for good food. And yet at every turn, they confront brokenness in the food system. Access to healthy food is not secure. Farmers and laborers struggle to find meaningful agricultural work that pays a livable wage. Animals and the land are abused. At the public policy level, legislation has increasingly favored mass-produced products in order to provide the largest amount of food to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible prices-- regardless of the consequences. Unable to trace the sources of their food, and perhaps even the ingredients, consumers are vulnerable to a deep and abiding alienation. Still, many religions, including the Christian tradition, orient themselves around the table, a site for connection and nourishment.
