Impact of global food production
on our children and on the planet

According to Joan Gussow's Wikipedia bio:

Joan Dye Gussow, EdD, is Mary Swartz Rose Professor emerita and former chair of the Nutrition Education Program at Teachers College, Columbia University,[2] where she has been a long-time analyst and critic of the U.S. food system. In her classic 1978 book The Feeding Web: Issues in Nutritional Ecology, which tracked the environmental hazards of an increasingly globalizing food system, she foreshadowed by several decades the current interest in relocalizing the food supply.

For decades, Joan Gussow has been an observer of the food system and of the effects of poor nutrition on our children. She has been instrumental in the movement toward local farming.
