WMNF Drive-Time News Tuesday | Listen to this entire show:

In his new book, Just Food, James E. McWilliams challenges popular wisdom, myth and misinformation about the fresh and local food movement.

McWilliams writes that “no single concept unites the locavore movement more powerfully than ‘food miles’, the distance our food travels before we eat it." He says that the concept of food miles is flawed on many levels.

We’ll air the 2nd part of this interview later this week on the Evening News.
