What People Are Saying:
“Field and Bell’s transformative work gets to the cultural and political heart of food politics and production. Harvesting Justice more than captures a deep, intelligent explanation of the state of food sovereignty in the Americas – it gives us an empowering, community-based framework for meaningful action. If you believe that food has power to change lives, read on.”
-Frances Moore Lappé, author of Diet for a Small Planet
“If you’re wondering what on earth ‘food sovereignty’ is, I can’t think of a better place to start than Harvesting Justice. [It] condense[s] a vast field of research and activism into a vibrant and lively handbook. It’s a terrific primer on what’s wrong with the global food system and, even better, what to do about it.”
- Raj Patel, author of Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System

“If our people want to eat twenty years from now, we will need food justice. We will need to transform a dependent, fossil-fuels based industrial food system into one which restores our collective relationship to the land, the plants, and each other. The stories and the vision shared in Harvesting Justice inspire and inform that work. I’m grateful for the storytellers and those whose hands are on the earth.”
