Reviews for Stop : How the Fight for Good Food Transformed a Community and Inspired a Movement

Book News Reviews
Nick Saul was hired by the Stop, a small food bank in Toronto, Canada in 1998. This volume highlights the changes that turned it into a Community Food Centre that has even been praised by Jamie Oliver, an international "superchef." Saul and Curtis outline in a rough diary changes that took place over the next 14 years, including a movement toward nutritious food and the incorporation of homeless people as volunteers. Interspersed are comments on Canadian and even worldwide social conditions, in places as far away as Tanzania. The volume closes with a "note on sources" that outlines the books and organizations consulted in its preparation. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
