Stuffed: Positive Action
to Prevent a Global Food Crisis
by Pat Thomas
Stuffed presents a global perspective on food production and agriculture and is proposing a sustainable and fairly-traded path that we can follow to secure food for all and protection for the planet.
Essays from respected experts present an overview of the politics of food. Each chapter includes a call to action’ that shows readers how they can make a difference in their lives and how the world feeds itself.
Awareness about the need to change our attitude to food is already growing; small co-operatives and community farms are springing up, organic methods are being discovered and developed, ancient traditions are being reintroduced and old skills are being re-learnt as part of the transition from oil dependence to a low-carbon world.
If we get it right, the global population will be well fed and healthy, ‘stuffed’ full of good food. And if we get it wrong, with rampant climate change, ecosystems damaged beyond repair and not enough food to eat, the word ‘stuffed’ takes on a whole new meaning.
