The United States is a country of disparities, but none are as distressing
as the ones the affect what people eat. Food deserts, food insecurity, and
food banks are common for one class of Americans, and organically produced
food is ever more prevalent for another. Mark Winne, long-time food
activist and author will explore the American food gap, strategies to
reduce it, and consider comparisons between the US and UK.
