Very informative and easy to read

What did you love best about Harvest for Hope?

An easy read that kept my attention. Very informative with lots of detail. My 10 year old also lived the book

What was one of the most memorable moments of Harvest for Hope?

I think I'll always remember the scene with her at a conference and the glass of water. I attend meetings all the time and paid no attention to how the glass of water would be wasted many times

Which scene was your favorite?

I thoroughly enjoyed many scenes I'm not sure I have a favorite.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I've learned a lot and I am making a conscious effort to pay attention to the details about where my family's food comes from. We've purchased a water filter and buy more organic or wild crafted food items
