Reviews

"Katherine Gustafson is a troubadour for sustainable food, inviting us to jump into her rental car as she maps the inspiring alternative food system emerging across the United States. And here's a pleasant surprise: we don't spend any time in the privileged bubbles of Brooklyn or Berkeley; Gustafson's expansive and hopeful portrait puts the rest of America back in the picture. "Change Comes To Dinner" shows us the outline of a sane food system: now it's up to us to fill it in." --Naomi Klein, author of "The Shock Doctrine""In her wildly successful cross-country search for alternatives to our industrialized food system, Katherine Gustafson comes up with a terrific new word: "hoperaking," the gathering of inspiration (and the opposite of muckraking). The people whose work she describes here should inspire anyone to get busy and start planting." --Marion Nestle, Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at NYU and author of "What to Eat""The rise of the local food movement is the single most encouraging trend in America in the last decade--and Katherine Gustafson is reporting from the cutting edge. A deliciously important book!" -- Bill McKibben, author of "Earth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet""It would have been enough if Katie Gustafson had simply captured the inspiration and energy inherent to America's sustainable food revolution. But she does much more than that, writing with a keen eye for detail and wisely recognizing that good food writing isn't really about food: It's about the people behind it." --Ben Hewitt, author of "The Town That Food Saved: How One Community Found Vitality in Local Food""Essential, inspiring read for those interested in food production and politics and the complicated, essential roles both play in our social welfare."" -Booklist""A highly worthwhile read ... quality journalism to motivate the most apathetic of us to buy local, organic and seasonal."" -BookKvetch.com"
"Gustafson has a knack for tracking down everyday people with big ideas. Ideas that could really change our future. Ideas that are already changing people's lives ... leaving environmental gain as a potential perk to an already-winning system gives Gustafson's argument a bulletproof quality. It also frees her to investigate under-examined issues, like dynamics between race, class, and access to healthy food. As for Gustafson's hoperaking goal, mission accomplished." -"UTNE Reader"
"Both inspiring and realistic, Gustafson's book provides a hopeful assessment of the possibility of big changes in the U.S. food system. Recommended for general readers interested in eating healthy, questioning where their food comes from, or knowing more about the business of farming." -"Library Journal"
