Apr. 2018 - No More Food Fights!, Book of the Month

April 2018 – No More Food Fights

You voted and we listened! Our seventh selected book for AgBookClub will be No More Food Fights! by Michele Payn-Knoper. Just like the title indicates, this book tackles misconceptions in the food conversation from two different perspectives.

Here’s what you need to do this month:

Get the book. Buy it, borrow it, read over your neighbor’s shoulder — we don’t care. But don’t steal the book.
