Blessing the Hands That Feed Us (author event)


Vicki Robin, co-author of the bestselling Your Money or Your Life, recounts her month-long experiment eating only food sourced within a 10-mile radius of her home on Whidbey Island in Puget Sound, Washington, in her new book entitled Blessing the Hands That Feed Us: What Eating Closer to Home Can Teach Us About Food, Community, and Our Place on Earth.

She goes on to investigate how vitality could be restored to our regional food systems so everyone could have the benefit of what she calls "relational eating" - personally knowing your food suppliers and even the animals you eat. She calls this building “complementary food systems,” not to replace, but to work along side of the global industrial food systems our society has become dependent upon. Her book offers many practical tools for transformation, from changing our attitudes, habits, and food sources to getting active in social and political change.
