The Food Sharing Revolution

How Start-Ups, Pop-Ups, and Co-Ops are Changing the Way We Eat

Island Press

In The Food Sharing Revolution, Michael Carolan tells the stories of entrepreneurs who are bucking the corporate food system. They are farmers like Josh, a co-op dairyman who doesn’t own his cows, but has a good income and a sense of autonomy. They are business owners like Dorothy, who opened her bakery with the help of a no-interest crowd-sourced loan. They are chefs like Camilla, who introduces diners to her native Colombian cuisine through peer-to-peer meal sharing. Each is making the most of the sharing economy, while avoiding the pitfalls of Uber and Airbnb. Their success is not only good for aspiring producers, but for everyone who wants a healthier, more sustainable, and more ethical way to eat.
