Food for Everyone

Dear Reader,

Imagine a food system that delivers fresh, organic food to everybody. Can't be done in a world of industrial food? We say it can, and it must, especially in these economic hard times. Here's how…

Food for Everyone, the Spring 2009 issue of YES!, brings together the best ideas for a new food system, tells the inspiring stories of people revolutionizing food production, and shows how you too can join a growing local food movement that will best serve us all.

It's spring, so there's no need to wait. Dive into this issue now, then go outside and grow your own food, cook a fresh meal, and share the abundance with your neighbors.
