Quick notice for this morning's show with Wenonah Hauter, Executive Director of Food and Water Watch and author of Foodopoly: The Battle of Food and Farming in America. If you can't join us live at 10:00am EST, then feel free to listen through the archives.

ENVISION THIS: a world where all people have access to enough affordable, healthy, and wholesome food and clean water to meet their basic needs -- a world in which governments are accountable to their citizens and manage essential resources sustainably.

Wenonah promises to be live with us this Friday, so this is the REAL THING.

Our guest, Wenonah Hauter, is the Executive Director of Food & Water Watch. She has worked extensively on food, water, energy and environmental issues at the national, state and local level. Her book Foodopoly: The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America examines the corporate consolidation and control over our food system and what it means for farmers and consumers.

Wenonah owns an organic family farm that provides healthy vegetables to hundreds of families as part of the growing nationwide Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) movement. Yet, as one of the nation's leading healthy-food advocates, Hauter believes that the local food movement is not enough to solve America's food crisis and the public health debacle it has created. In Foodopoly , she takes aim at the real culprit: the control of food production by a handful of large corporations--backed by political clout--that prevents farmers from raising healthy crops and limits the choices that people can make in the grocery store.
