Join WSLR 96.5 Community Radio and Transition Sarasota for a free presentation and book signing by Foodopoly author Wenonah Hauter.
Foodopoly presents the shocking account of how agricultural policy has been hijacked by lobbyists, driving out independent farmers and food processors in favor of the likes of Cargill, Tyson, Kraft, and ConAgra.
Author Wenonah Hauter demonstrates how the impacts ripple far and wide, from economic stagnation in rural communities at home, to famines in poor countries overseas.
In the end, Hauter 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.

Wenonah will be available after her presentation to answer questions and sign books.
