When we walk into a super- market, we assume that we have the widest possible choice of healthy and nutritious foods. The truth is--it is neither. And it is entrenched government policy that has built, supports, and continues this dysfunctional system. With the 2012 Food Bill on the horizon in Washington, we need to understand how this came to be. Food Fight charts the changing landscape of food politics and how individual choices resonate from the home to the community and the planet.
