When Frankie and her classmates are asked where their food comes from, it sparks curiosity about her town's food system. Walking home, I tell Grandpa about my project. ‘We live in a place where you can buy a burger for one dollar, or pay two dollars for one banana. That doesn't add up!'" Frankie begins to unravel the mystery of how he's affecting her community and how she and her classmates can make a difference.
The author combines years of experience fighting hunger as a food bank CEO with an MFA in writing for young children to craft an honest story of how the food system can affect adults and children. Frankie's story encourages children to investigate where their food comes from and can be used in group settings to address social justice issues in an accessible way.
A section at the back of the book provides additional information on what a food system is, common problems with the food system, and what we can do about the problems.
