From your burger to your soda, Gustafson unpacks how even the hyper local can cause worldwide ripples. For instance: American agricultural policy promoting corn and soybeans in beef farming means we feed more to cows than to hungry people. This is compounded by the environmental cost of factory livestock farming, rising obesity rates, and the false economics of unhealthful high meat consumption. The answer? Eat a hamburger - just make it a smaller, sustainably raised, grass-fed one. Gustafson - a young entrepreneur, foreign policy expert, and food policy advocate - delivers a wake-up call that will inspire even the most passive reader to take action. We can love our food and our country while being better stewards of our system and our health. We the Eaters is nothing short of a manifesto: If we change dinner, we really can change the world.

"We the Eaters is more than an eye-opening primer on how we consume in the 21st century. Encompassing the full scope of transformation from farm to fork, it's a manifesto for how we should act and unafraid of the radical change we need to get us to a sustainable future." --Raj Patel, author of Stuffed and Starved"This book is a major lesson on the global food system and how 'we the eaters' plan an essential role in it. You will learn from Ellen Gustafson and feel empowered to change the world simply by being conscious of what you're eating." --Sophia Bush, actress and activist"A magnificent analysis of what has happened to our food and how it is impacting the health of our loved ones. We the Eaters is a data-driven wake-up call to the current state of our food system and how the most patriotic thing that we could be doing is to build a better one." --Robyn O'Brien, author of The Unhealthy Truth and founder of AllergyKids"A very smart look at a very complicated and very important issue. No one I know connects the dots to tell this story better than Ellen Gustafson. If you want to know how the power of food can change the world, you must read this book." --Jose Andres, chef and restaurateur, Think Food Group
