Reason #6: Janet Poppendieck says it’s the book she’s been waiting for her whole career. (She liked it.)

REASON #6 to buy The American Way of Eating comes from Janet Poppendieck:

This is the book I’ve been waiting for ever since I started teaching about the American food system. It pulls you in with compelling stories of the real people who do the work, often exhausting and dangerous, that makes our American way of eating possible. And once it has your attention, it educates you about the details of our food system, from field to table. It is simultaneously a valuable contribution to the academic field of food studies and a personal narrative of discovery that will  engage even the casual reader. Three cheers for Tracie McMillan!”

Janet Poppendieck, author, Free for All: Fixing School Food in America and Sweet Charity: Emergency Food and the End of Entitlement

The book goes on sale Tuesday, Feb. 21.

Please buy it.

And if you are in New York, come celebrate with me at Housing Works to talk about “The Anti-Foodie Foodies” with Amanda Hesser, James Oseland, Annia Ciezadlo and Rev. Devanie Jackson, moderated by the lovely Erica Wides.
