This book explores the links between food and democracy. It addresses how democratic principles can be used to shape our food system and takes a practical a€˜how-toa€™ approach to using democratic processes to regain control of the food we eat. It also highlights what food democracy looks like on the ground and how individuals, communities and societies can be empowered to access, cook and eat healthy food in ways that are sustainable.
