Marion Nestle was awarded Living Liberally’s Robert Putnam Social Capital Award for “fearlessly championing the grassroots good food movement” and for “promoting the radical notion that a more sustainable national diet can help build a more sustainable world.” The award was presented at the organization’s annual fundraiser in May.
Nestle, Paulette Goddard professor in Steinhardt’s Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, is the author of seven books including Food Politics (University of California Press, 2002) and What to Eat (North Point Press, 2006). Her latest book, Feed Your Pet Right (Free Press, 2010), has just been released.
