FOOD, HUNGER & THE ENVIRONMENT
Building on Frances Moore Lappé’s path-breaking Diet for a Small Planet, the Institute continues to combat the myth of scarcity in a world of plenty. Frances and Anna Lappé’s Hope’s Edge deepened the analysis of the ways in which we can feed the world sustainably.
Then, drawing on their earlier classic study, Frances and Joseph Collins released the fully rewritten World Hunger: 10 Myths. Now, Senior Researcher Timothy A. Wise extends the institute’s work with Eating Tomorrow: Agribusiness, Family Farmers, and the Battle for the Future of Food (New Press, February 2019).

Frances and Anna speak about how the counter-culture food movement that gained momentum in the 70s has become a mainstream call to action that doesn't just ask ourselves what we eat, but what choices are we making about democracy and climate change.

Frances is working on her new book, It's Not Too Late!
It’s Not Too Late! offers a surprising and motivating new lens through which to see the climate crisis. Though many feel overwhelmed and tempted to give up, we find a genuine ray of hope: The very severity of the climate crisis could trigger a historic awakening, enabling us to grasp causal connections among the climate crisis, our broken political system, and our economic distress.
With this awakening we can address the three roots simultaneously—and then take the necessary steps to create a just, sustainable, and prosperous future for us all. We can—and must—build a livable America capable of positive global leadership. Our book lays out why ... and how.
STORYTELLING, CRITICAL ANALYSIS, AND STRATEGY FOR THE FOOD MOVEMENT.
We use media and storytelling strategies to strengthen the food movement by decoding corporate spin, revealing the true cost of industrial food, and showing how, together, we can transform the food system. We expose industry spin, bust food myths, and challenge corporate power.
