 As the executive director of Food & Water Watch, Wenonah Hauter is one of the nation’s leading healthy food advocates.

 

In her new book, Foodopoly: The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America, she contends that the local food movement is not enough to solve America’s food crisis and the public health debacle it has created. Instead, Hauter takes aim at the real culprit: the massive consolidation and corporate control of food production, which prevents farmers from raising healthy crops and limits the choices that people can make in the grocery store.

Hauter, who has written extensively on food, water, energy, and environ­mental issues, owns a working farm in The Plains, Virginia.
