Blessing the Hands That Feed Us

Blessing the Hands That Feed Us
What Eating Closer to Home Can Teach Us About Food, Community, and Our Place on Earth
Vicki Robin

There seems to be a lot of focus on locally grown foods, non-GMOs, and harmful food additives in the news and conversations right now. The author has taken a potentially dry subject and infused it with humor and personal stories. What began as a personal story to find out more about the food industry and locally grown products turned into an inspiring book about farmers, gardening, and people in local communities.

I am interested in a healthy alternative to all of the pre-packaged options out there. But I'll admit some reluctance to reading a book about it. But the author has done a great job of capturing the reader's attention while still imparting useful information. I finished the book inspired to change some of my eating habits, work on growing my garden, and checking out some of the local farmers.

I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
