Food Justice makes a highly valuable contribution to the movement for food justice.—Christof Bernau, Human Ecology—
Food Justice is an eye-opening treatment of an important subject that has something to offer every reader, and will prove especially useful to those with a keen interest in learning about, and perhaps changing, where their food comes from.
This book is essential reading for scholars interested in the connections between food and the environment.

The authors excel…in presenting a well-rounded picture of how food justice—and more prevalent food injustices—touches our daily lives.

, Policy Perspectives
While their pragmatic and wide-ranging approach to food justice might not be appreciated by environmental purists, the authors’ stock of common-sense solutions and genuine concern makes Food Justice an interesting and authoritative read. Their central argument—that the approach to transforming the way we eat needs to be more integrated—is compelling and certainly worth considering. Unfortunately injustices in the way food is produced and consumed won’t go away over night. But if, as Food Justice advocates, we work together and focus on community-based initiatives, then we are on the right track.
