    FOOD FIGHT: THE CITIZEN'S GUIDE TO THE NEXT FOOD & FARM BILL

    Imhoff, Kirschenmann
    Paperback

    Price: $11.12

    CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $19.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

    If you are interested in reforming America’s food system, we highly recommend this new Guide. Informed input from concerned citizens is the only thing that will counter the powerful vested interests and bring us a fresh food/farm policy that serves public health, job creation, land stewardship and even national security.

    Every five years, the U.S. Congress passes complex legislation called the Farm Bill. Primarily accountable for setting the budgets and work plans for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Farm Bill is the essential economic and policy engine that drives our food and farming system and provides nutritional assistance to tens of millions of Americans—many of them children. In recent years, more and more citizens are realizing just how much is at stake in this political chess game.

    Originally published in 2007, Food Fight is Daniel Imhoff's highly acclaimed primer on the complex issues contained within the Farm Bill. Now in a newly updated and expanded edition, Imhoff looks ahead at this important issue, as the debate for 2012 is already underway. With the legislation due to be reauthorized in late 2012, Food Fight offers a critical resource that can help concerned citizens deconstruct this challenging bill, organize in their communities and press their elected representatives to serve the public good, rather than vested interests.

    The Guide explains:
    • The Farm Bill’s connection to the national obesity epidemic…
    • The problems with subsidizing the expansion of corn-based ethanol…
    • The myths of “cheap food”…
    • Who wins and who loses from heavily subsidized industrial ag systems.
    If you eat, pay taxes, and care about the health of our citizenry, the fate of family farmers or our country’s food security, this book is for you.

    Includes a foreword by Michael Pollan.
