The Washington Times Reviews “On a Dollar a Day”…

In what I think is the first official review for “On a Dollar a Day”, Washington Times reviewer Claire Hopley contextualizes what the book adds to the growing discussion about our food system. In reference to our critique about the Thrifty Food Plan she writies,

“The analysis of why this well-intentioned program does not fully meet the needs of its intended beneficiaries is one of the most cogent parts of “On a Dollar a Day.”

Enjoy the review!
