This book challenges our thinking about how we connect with others and the systems we have set up to support each other as a society. It proposes transformative change in how we view food and its importance to our existence.

I could not put this down. I was surprised to learn this organization exists right in our backyard.
Truly inspiring story about a group of people who have brought to light an important part of society and how there are better, more creative and engaging ways to assist.
A must read.

An interesting case study about the evolution of a food bank's charity model to a non-profit business.Lots of good lessons for activists to consider in the creation of a food centre that engages members.
