Executive Director Wenonah Hauter will be in your community taking about her new book FoodopolyJoin us at Busboys and Poets in Washington, DC for a discussion about the book, the problems facing our food system and what we can do about it.

Besides being the Executive Director of Food & Water Watch, Wenonah grew up on a family farm that her husband runs today as a Community Supported Agriculture project (CSA). The farm provides healthy vegetables to over 500 families in the Washington, D.C. area.

Wenonah’s time on the farm and working in Washington, D.C. as an advocate has helped her see first hand how agricultural policy has been hijacked by lobbyists, driving out independent farmers and food processors in favor of the likes of Cargill, Tyson, Kraft and ConAgra. Let’s talk about how to create a better food system, not one dominated by profits and exploitation.
