With a foreword by Carolyn Steel of Hungry City, Wayne Roberts' new book will do for city-food connections what Raj Patel's Stuffed and Starved did to link hunger and obesity, what Marion Nestle's Food Politics did to tie together government agencies and food monopolies and what Michael Pollan did to connect corn and porkbarrel politics. You don't have to look hard to find books on food problems and city problems. Roberts puts them together to create solutions. Profiling the kind of imaginative and cost-effective solutions he developed over 10 years as manager of the Toronto Food Policy Council, Roberts lays out frameworks that lead to remedies such as: - How to expand the number of rewarding food careers for youth - Addressing the need for healthy food and dignity for the hungry and malnourished - How to develop age-friendly food systems for yesterday's baby boomers; - How to open up mainstream opportunities for people engaged in urban and regional agriculture; - How to get buy-in for official plans that foster economic rejuvenation, environmental protection and social inclusion.
