How the good food movement can solve the problem of hunger

When community worker Nick Saul became the executive director of The Stop in 1998, he found a cramped and under-funded food pantry.  Through his vision and leadership, The Stop was transformed into a thriving, internationally respected Community Food Centre. The Stop has flourished with gardens, kitchens, a greenhouse, farmers markets and a mission to revolutionize our food system. In an easy to read, down to earth way, he tells us what The Stop could mean for the future of food.  His passionate argument that everyone deserves a dignified, healthy place at the table is hard to disagree with.

The Stop, a Community Food Centre, introduces us to a whole new way to combat hunger and poverty.  In a way that few have accomplished, The Stop brings the anti-hunger and good food movements together.  It's worth the read for anyone working to fight hunger or on the good food movement.
