Weekend reading: Andy Fisher’s Big Hunger
Andrew Fisher. Big Hunger: The Unholy Alliance between Corporate America and Anti-Hunger Groups. MIT Press, 2017.
This book has a big theme, and I was happy to do a blurb for it:
If you don’t understand why anti-hunger groups hardly ever advocate for higher wages or public health nutrition measures for low-income Americans, see Andy Fisher’s analysis: they owe too much to their food-company donors. Big Hunger is a call to action, one well worth heeding.
Here’s his interview today in Civil Eats.
