Food Policy

My love of food stretches beyond the vast and beautiful shelves of the cookbook section at my local bookstore into the real heart of the matter–food policy and food politics. My chosen few listed below represent the food policy advocates that I believe in. Their readings and contributions to the organic and profood movement leave me deeply inspired. I have great admiration for these trailblazers. Thank you for changing my world.
