Fair Food Network – Grow the Good

Found this newsletter in my inbox and since the Fair Food Network is new to me, as it Oran Hesterman’s new book, I thought I’d share it with all of you.

Fair Food Network: Grow the Good
Dear Friends, 

As Oran’s wife, I want to share with you my excitement about the upcoming publication of his book, Fair Food: Growing a Healthy, Sustainable Food System for All.   Over the past decades, I have experienced (first hand and daily!) his passionate commitment to transforming our broken food system, and I am remarkably proud of the many ways he has found to make an impact.Fair Food: Growing a Healthy, Sustainable Food System for All

As a Professor of Agronomy and Extension Specialist at Michigan State University, he traveled the state working directly with farmers to create more sustainable farming systems.  As a Program Director at the Kellogg Foundation, he traveled the country seeding the local good food movement with resources, ideas, and connections. Aware of the profound challenges inherent in redesigning the broken food system, he founded FairFood Network to address these issues, particularly in under-served communities, and continues to spread  the fair food movement nationwide.

And all of his dedication, knowledge, experience and passion has been channeled into this book, Fair Food, which powerfully presents a blueprint for change and a roadmap for how to get us  there.

I unabashedly recommend this book to you, knowing that it is truly a labor of love and devotion to the fair food future we all want for our children and future generations.

Best,
Lucinda Kurtz
