Closing the Food Gap: Resetting the Table in the Land of Plenty

Interview with Mark Winne, author of Closing the Food Gap:  Resetting the Table in the Land of Plenty.  

Closing the Food Gap exposes America's dangerous dietary split: from patrons of food pantries, bodegas, and convenience stores to the more comfortable classes who increasingly seek out organic and local products. Calling largely on his own experience in food activism, and mixing in surprisingly witty observations, Mark Winne ultimately envisions realistic partnerships in which family farms and impoverished communities come together to get healthy, locally produced food onto everyone's table.


"Closing the Food Gap reveals the chasm between the two foodsystems of America-the one for the poor and the one for everyone else. Mark Winne offers compelling solutions for making local, organic, and highly nutritious food available to everyone. It's heartening to find a book that successfully blends a passion for sustainable living with compassion for the poor."
-Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of thhe Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace
