about

Faced with a climate crisis, can people commit to action? Faced with evidence that our agriculture and our diets fuel that crisis-producing significant greenhouse gases-can we muster the vision to produce and consume food differently? Transforming food systems to meet a threat has been done before, as revealed in Mobilize Food! Wartime Inspiration for Environmental Victory Today. The book recounts the dramatic story of World War II Britain, its Ministry of Food, and its millions of citizens who fought for their democracy partly by growing more, wasting less, and sharing scarce foods equitably so that everyone could feed themselves during an emergency and beyond. Highly relevant to today as we fight our battles for healthy environments and a liveable global climate, Mobilize Food! offers strategies for action and hope in our time. It shows that entire populations can remake food systems to be sustainable, healthy, and fair-and that just as people in the past were capable of greatness, so are we.
