Timothy Wise will read from his new book Eating Tomorrow: Agribusiness, Family Farmers, and the Battle for the Future of Food. Few challenges are more daunting than feeding a global population projected to reach 9.7 billion in 2050. Eating Tomorrowuncovers how in country after country, agribusiness has hijacked food policies to feed corporate interests. The world’s hundreds of millions of small-scale farmers can show the way forward as the world warms and population increases. “I recommend Eating Tomorrow to anyone who wants to understand how the industrial food system is destroying our health, biosphere, and food culture.”—Million Belay, coordinator, Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa
