Ideas Turned Into Actions

Books have the power to transform how we view the world in great and small ways. And so it is with food. The 2014 Reading Together selections – The American Way of Eating and Farm City – provide the springboard for community members who have been inspired to turn ideas gleaned from books, experiences, and memories into actions that changed their lives. Hear their stories.
