Local Food Environments: Food Access in America

CRC Press • Sept. 2014 • Edited by Kimberly Morland

LocalFoodEnvironments-BookCoverI wrote the foreword for this thoughtful collection of academic work examining food access in America, edited by the wonderful Kimberly Morland.

Local Food Environments: Food Access in America provides information on the complex nature of food delivery systems as well as the historical and political trends that have shaped them over time. The book presents the empirical evidence demonstrating disparities in access to healthy affordable foods across the United States and how these disparities may explain food consumption patterns for some Americans as well as potential risks for diet-related illness.
