A look at the growing power of local efforts across America to say no to the industrial food system and yes to self-reliance, better health, and community.

In Food Rebels, Guerrilla Gardeners, and Smart-Cookin’ Mamas, Mark Winne takes on “Big Ag,” the industrial food system. Offering an antidote to this soulless system, Winne shows how people are empowering themselves beyond simply shopping at Whole Foods, creating programs and policies to bring people and their food closer together. He gives readers a hopeful vision--and a blueprint--for a world in which home-grown food options supplant the status quo.

“This book is a lively, personal journey through one man’s efforts to make sustainably grown food available and affordable for regular folks. It’s a heartening but realistic take on what needs to happen–emphasis on need! Bravo, Mark!” –Meryl Streep

“A good combination of solid research and affirmative testimonials.” –Kirkus Reviews

Food Rebels tells the stories of unsung heroes in the food movement–everyday people who realized that they had the power to change the way food and farming work in their communities and in the world, and did something about it. With these stories, Mark Winne inspires us and challenges us to take a stand for good, clean, fair, and affordable food for all.” –Josh Viertel, president of Slow Food USA

“It’s rare for a single voice to speak so clearly to the many points of our lives that are touched by food. Mark’s approach is simple, humble, truthful, eloquent, and powerful. With stories ranging from Native American communities to Korea, Mark’s work proves the global importance and impact of food.” –Michel Nischan, chef and president/CEO of Wholesome Wave
