Foodopoly Book Tour Event in Washington, DC
Join Food & Water Watch’s Executive Director Wenonah Hauter as she discusses her new book, Foodopoly.
Foodopoly exposes the real culprits threatening our food system — consolidation and corporate control — which are preventing farmers from raising healthy crops and limiting the choices people can make in the grocery store.
After the discussion, Wenonah will be available to sign copies of the book for anyone in attendance.
Date: Wednesday, January 16, 2013
Executive Director Wenonah Hauter will be in your community taking about her new book Foodopoly. Join 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.
