Wenonah Hauter - Foodopoly: The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America 

When: Thu., May 9, 5:30 p.m. 2013
Price: Free
Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch and organic farmer, will be in Charlotte to discuss her new book, Foodopoly, where she takes aim at the real culprit behind our broken food system: the massive consolidation and corporate control of food production. Hauter presents a shocking account of how agricultural policy has been hijacked by lobbyists, driving out independent farmers and food processors and illustrates how solving this crisis will require a complete structural shift, a grassroots movement to reshape our food system from seed to table--a change that is about politics, not just personal choice.
