Frances Moore Lappé
I interviewed the author of Diet for a Small Planet at the Women of Wisdom conference in Seattle, WA in 2003. She had recently published Hope’s Edge, co-written with her daughter Anna. Lappé’s dedication to ending world hunger and promoting sustainable agriculture and democracy world-wide is impressive. My article “Reclaiming control of our food supply” appeared in the November 2003 issue of Alive magazine.
Want to learn more about Lappé’s work? Check out the websites of the organizations she founded: Small Planet Institute, The Institute for Food and Development Policy/Food First and Center for Living Democracy.
