Description - Closing the Food Gap by Mark Winne

Closing the Food Gap tells the story of how we get our food: from poor people at food pantries or bodegas and convenience stores to the more comfortable classes, who increasingly seek out organic and local products. Winne's exploration starts in the 1960s, when domestic poverty was 'rediscovered', and shows how communities since that time have responded to malnutrition with a slew of strategies and methods.
