Food insecurity rates that skyrocketed with the Great Recession have yet to fall to pre-recession levels. Food pantries are stretched thin, and states are imposing new restrictions on programs like SNAP that are preventing people from getting crucial government assistance. At the same time, we see an increase in obesity that results from lack of access to healthy foods. The poor face a daily choice between paying bills and paying for food.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[Food and Poverty] has a wealth of data and perspectives I had not before considered. As a practicing physician I see how my patients are greatly affected by their food and lifestyle choices. This book has helped me understand that there are larger forces at play in food production and distribution that impact the daily choices our patients make."
--Shruti Varadarajan, MD, Family Medicine
