"The Stop is an inspiring true story about how a low-income neighbourhood used good food to take charge of its community—it's a great lesson for all of us." — Jamie Oliver

"Amid a glut of food manifestos and local-food edicts, this title stands out as an important contribution to the discussion around food and social justice. What’s more, its publication comes at a critical time: Saul and his crew are taking the model on the road with plans to make it a national movement." — Maclean's

Co-presented by Santropol Roulant, Food Secure Canada, the McGill Sustainability Office, NDG Food Depot, the McConnell Foundation and Random House Canada and Community Food Centres Canada.
