The Whiteness of Alternative Food

Last Wednesday I drew from a source I had found regarding race and alternative food. It discusses the inherent 'whiteness' of the alternative/local food movement. Here is the source for those interested. The Ebook is available on the library website.

Guthman, J. (2011). "If They Only Knew": The Unbearable Whiteness of Alternative Food. In Alkon, Alison Hope, and Agyeman, Julian. Cultivating Food Justice : Race, Class, and Sustainability. Cambridge, MA, USA: MIT Press, 2011. ProQuest ebrary. Web. 5    December 2014.

Good luck this week!! We all need it!!
