Good Food

Full Product Description

Everything about food and eating is broken. At the public policy level, legislation has increasingly favored mass-produced products in order to provide the largest amount of food to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible prices--regardless of the consequences. Public policy decisions have created a food system that is constantly political and often hostile and that involves an increasing number of economic stakeholders. Decisions about food production have become removed from the consumers they affect. In Good Food , Ayres chronicles the story of people ignorant of the source of their food, perhaps even the ingredients, and in many cases uninformed about the theological and psychological significance of food shared in community. Good Food is a practical theology grounded in rich ethnographic research that moves beyond a first world understanding of food and acknowledges the food practices of diverse populations. Because Ayres finds the Christian approach to food lacking, she turns to actual practices of food justice, discovering in the process a rich theology for food.
Ayres challenges Christians to participate in communal initiatives that will make a real difference--to support local farmers, start their own gardens, and advocate for fair food policies. Good Food equips readers with the theological and practical tools needed to ensure that which sustains us: food.
