Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Food Not Bombs is . . . rooted in belief . . . that we actually can feed a hungry world while helping our planet survive. . . I'm delighted that Keith McHenry's book, Hungry for Peace, will help usher us toward sanity and real security."  —Kathy Kelly, co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence

"It is no coincidence that Food Not Bombs has become a mainstay within countless social movements around the world. . . Hungry for Peace provides the tools needed to get out and--without bosses, leaders or approval--do it yourself."  —Will Potter, author, Green Is the New Red

"Sharing food is a basic human function, and peace is humankind's highest aspiration. Food Not Bombs brings both of these together in a powerful way, providing a recipe. . . for creating a better world right here and now." —Randall Amster, JD, PhD, Graduate Chair of Humanities Prescott College Executive Director, Peace & Justice Studies Association

"Over and over, we hear the refrain: 'The problems are so big. How can I make a difference?' Keith McHenry and Food Not Bombs answer this question every single day, in words and actions." —Mickey Z., author, Darker Shade of Green
