Reviews

"The Stop is an inspiring true story about how a low-income neighborhood used good food to take charge of its community--it's a great lesson for all of us." --Jamie Oliver "The Stop is one of those forward-thinking groups pointing the way to the future of good food." --MARK BITTMAN "The riveting inside story of a food bank that through perseverance and principle turned itself into one of our most visionary movements for justice and equality." --NAOMI KLEIN, author of The Shock Doctrine and No Logo "In clear and honest prose, [Saul and Curtis] share their struggles and hope with plain talk through tough decisions. How better to learn about ending hunger than through the story of a former food bank whose aim was to put itself out of business?" --RAJ PATEL, author of Stuffed and Starved "This is an important book. The Stop is no ordinary account of the substantial benefits of soup kitchens to servers and served. It is an impassioned account of how to create food systems that foster independence and eliminate the indignities of charity. Saul and Curtis put a human face on poverty. If you want to know what today's food movement is really about--and why it is anything but elitist--read this book." --MARION NESTLE, Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York University and author of What to Eat "The Stop reads like a compelling novel...but it's all real. This book enables readers to join the frontier of true democracy, where we hear the voices, smell the aromas, and feel the stories of people creating communities of mutuality. Food becomes the 'uniter' of cultures and generations--where each of us feels respect and has voice. Read it and see possibilities for yourself and our world that maybe you've never seen before." --Frances Moore Lapp , author of EcoMind and Diet for a Small Planet
