The Food Activist Handbook: Big & Small Things You Can Do to Help Provide Fresh, Healthy Food for Your Community
by Ali Berlow, 318 pages, 6x9, softcover. Fedco wears its politics on its sleeve, so it may come as no surprise that our offices and warehouses felt like a zombie apocalypse movie the day after the 2016 elections. At Fedco and across America came a sharpened desire to do something—preferably something beyond sharing petitions on social media—and many felt at a loss as to what and how. Regardless of your voting record, if you want to do something concrete and effective to make the world a better place, this book offers a great road map to improving access to local healthful food, helping small-scale farmers along the way. From the private and unoriginal (meatless Mondays) to the sociable (screen a food film) to the educational (work with your local school garden program) to the political (submit public comments at town meetings on food-related issues), Berlow offers ideas for every personality and level of ambition. Not just a brainstorming session: her advice is experienced, practical, and detailed. A header shows up every few pages to cheer you on: “You can do this.” -Alice Coyle
