Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch, a Washington-based environmental group, is coming to Baltimore Tuesday to present her case that corporate control of agriculture is limiting our choice of food at the grocery store.
Hauter, whose group focuses on fishery management as well as food and water, will be speaking at 7 p.m. at the Enoch Pratt central library, on her new book, Foodopoly: The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America.
In addition to her activism, Hauter runs an organic family farm in northern Virginia that provides vegetables to more than 500 D.C. area families in a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. But according to the blurb about her on the library's web site, she doesn't believe that the local-food movement is enough to ensure that Americans have access to healthy food.
