dc.description.abstractDespite their apparent abundance of resources, our cities often leave the urban poor hungry, heavy, and sick. This book isn’t really about the food that most people eat in Africa’s cities, though. Rather, it’s about the many forces that shape the day-to-day choices that people make as they try to survive close to the breadline, and how that expresses itself through the food they eat. "Tomatoes & Taxi Ranks" debunks some of the stubborn misconceptions about how cities keep themselves well fed and well nourished, and considers how to create a more sustainable and equitable urban food system, particularly for those struggling to make ends meet. This book is written for anyone interested in creating sustainable, fair cities on our continent. A product of the Consuming Urban Poverty Project.
