Product Details


“Berg, executive director of the New York City Coalition Against Hunger, spotlights domestic poverty and hunger in this book that has sharp words for politicians, charities and religious denominations. The author reveals how consistently the federal government has ignored the fact that 35.5 million Americans, including 12.6 million children, don’t have enough to eat. Although local governments cared for hungry and poverty-stricken citizens in the pre-Depression years, contemporary politicos in Washington have alternately denied that hunger is a problem, then admitted its existence, then tried to eradicate it with programs that rarely last. Whether he is reasoning why the word hunger is better and more to-the-point than the government’s term food insecure, pillorying hunger surveys that don’t count the homeless or demonstrating how even well-meaning social services contribute to the problem, Berg is a passionate and articulate advocate.” –Publishers Weekly

“Hunger is a national disgrace in America. Joel Berg has, in a straightforward and provocative way, given all of us a framework with which to deal with it.” –Dan Glickman, Former Secretary of Agriculture

“Joel Berg unmasks this invisible crisis in his well-researched book just as it threatens to get even worse. A must-read for policy makers and anyone interested in the well-being of tens of millions of Americans.” –Dale Maharidge, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of And Their Children After Them, and associate professor at the Graduate School of Journalism, Columbia University

“Joel Berg is, flat out, one of the boldest thinkers in the fight [against hunger], and All You Can Eat will prove it.” –Robert Egger, founder of DC Central Kitchen and author of Begging for Change

All You Can Eat makes the powerful case that Americans have both a moral imperative and a collective self-interest to end hunger.” –Dr. J. Larry Brown, Harvard School of Public Health
