"This innovative collection brings together a series of narratives to explore critical topics relating to food insecurity, farm labor, and obesity. Instead of giving us ethical principles or telling us how we should think about food-related topics, the approach permits us to develop our reactions and perceptions through the detailed stories provided, together with our engagement with them. The rich methodology developed here should prove invaluable for future investigations of food-related topics and beyond." * Rachel A. Ankeny, University of Adelaide, Australia *
"In focusing on ethical reasoning, Dixon offers a fresh perspective to the burgeoning scholarly literature on food justice." * Julie Guthman, University of California, Santa Cruz, USA *
"Dixon's book offers a timely analysis of one of the most pressing challenges at the intersection of hunger relief and food justice; how the stories we tell can perpetuate or expose injustice. It's time to challenge the dominant narrative of hunger, share true and complicated stories, and expose the root causes of poverty. Only then can we begin to build an equitable food system for all." * Amanda Nickey, Mother Hubbard's Cupboard, USA *
