Description - The Stop by Nick Saul
FAMOUS CHEFS AND ACTIVISTS ARE ADAMANT SUPPORTERS- British super-chef Jamie Oliver wrote on Twitter that he'd travelled all over the world and never seen anything like The Stop; New York Times columnist Mark Bittman says The Stop is ""pointing the way to the future of good food,"" and Raj Patel said he was ""blown away"" The Stop's model of an NGO. B>TIMELY ISSUE- 1 in 6 Americans do not know where their next meal is coming from, including 16.7 million children under 18. People who are food insecure are twice as likely to be diagnosed with diabetes, and many struggle with obesity. B>PROACTIVE APPROACH- THE STOP is not about villainizing food banks, it's a way to channel the compassion and care of the food bank response into a progressive project. """The Stop is an inspiring true story about how a low-income neighbourhood used good food to take charge of its community--it's a great lesson for all of us.""--Jamie Oliver
