Frances Moore Lappé is the author or co-author of twenty books about world hunger, living democracy, and the environment, beginning with the three-million-copy Diet for a Small Planet in 1971. She has been featured on the Today show, Hardball with Chris Matthews, Fox & Friends, The Wall Street Journal, NPR, the CBC and BBC, and other news outlets. Frances is the cofounder of three organizations including the Oakland-based think tank Food First and the Small Planet Institute, which she leads with her daughter, Anna Lappé. The pair also cofounded the Small Planet Fund, which channels resources to democratic social movements worldwide.
Reviews
"A small number of people in every generation are forerunners--in thought, action, spirit--who swerve past the barriers of greed and power to hold a torch high for the rest of us. Lappé is one of those."--Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States

"Since the publication of [Diet for a Small Planet, ] a movement dedicated to the reform of the food system has taken root in America. Lappé's groundbreaking book connected the dots between something as ordinary and all-American as a hamburger and the environmental crisis, as well as world hunger."--Michael Pollan, The Nation
