EARTHKEEPER HERO: FRANCES MOORE LAPPE

12:58 Sep 25 2012 25 Mt Auburn St #203, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA

Description
Frances Lappe feels that the problem of hunger will not be solved from the top down, with governments shipping food to those countries in need. It has to start from the ground, giving people a base to create their own ways of nourishing themselves. With Joseph Collins, she founded Food First in 1975. Still going strong thirty years later, Food First researches the causes of hunger and organizes work to help give the poor a voice, access to land, and the knowledge of ecology and environmentally friendly farming.
