The global food system causes obesity and malnutrition in equal measure. Capitalist agriculture drives environmental crisis and encourages the emergence of new diseases.

Today the food on supermarket shelves connects agricultural workers in the Global South, factory farmers in North America and growers of cash crops in sub-Saharan Africa. In this pamphlet, Amy Leather argues that we need a revolution – from farm to plate – to feed people healthily and sustainably.
