Food and Culture - Counhian & Esterik: “There is the odd paradox—the casualness with which they will throw something into the dumpster, and the lengths they will go to protect it once it’s there. How an innocent and harmless act—dumpster diving—will be confronted by greedy shop- keepers, store managers, and employees with scathing words, rage, and violence” (Anonymous 2001: 72).

Food and Culture - Counhian & Esterik: "A study recently released by USDA estimates that between production and end use, more than a quarter of the food produced in the United States goes to waste" (Counhian & Esterik 2013: 563)

Food and Culture - Learning Democracy Through Food Justice Movements: "In this paper I will examine food justice movements as a valuable site for counter- ing the identity of the person only as a consumer, and as a place for learning active democratic citizenship."(Counhian & Esterik 2013: 588)
