About the book:

This profusely illustrated book chronicles the Community Food Bank’s (CFB) amazing success and evolution from a tiny grassroots hunger-relief organization to one with more than six thousand workers and an annual budget exceeding $100 million. The book gives voice to the thousands of CFB participants past and present, weaving their profiles and quotes throughout the book. These profiles personalize the history of the CFB and give readers an insider’s perspective on the people and events that shaped the food bank’s success. It shows how individuals working together can help prevent hunger and break the cycle of poverty that is its cause.

“Find out how one community led a nation by recognizing food insecurity as a systemic and personal problem and went about solving it with respect, dignity and the realization that community action aligned with individual responsibility can lead to resilience while strengthening the bonds that hold us together.”—Janos Wilder, James Beard Award-winning Tucson Chef
