    mobi ç Hungry City Paperback Hungry CityThe book covers almost every aspect of the food chain it's history and impact today Found this very interesting and definitely taught me some things However it is not groundbreaking has a strong focus on England and a bit of a lack of a clear point she wants to make I think the book is insightful for people that know less about the food sector
