Frances Moore Lappe[Program 77]
Frances Moore Lappe

"I was just absolutely swept away. I thought: Oh my gosh! If people only knew that hunger is needless, hunger is human-made, that we would all do something."

-- Frances Moore Lappe



More than thirty years after publication of her breakthrough best-selling book "Diet for a Small Planet," Frances Moore Lappe is still committed to helping us understand hidden connections -- between the foods we choose to eat, the earth on which they're grown, and the fact that today more than eight-hundred million people go hungry in our world. In this fascinating episode of Humankind, Lappe tells of her world journey to visit with citizen activists from Brazil to France to Kenya who are implementing new ways for food to be healthy, eco-friendly and generously available. The material is drawn in part from her new book, "Hope's Edge" co-authored with her daughter Anna Lappe.
