I borrowed this book from my local public library.
In this picture book biography, Martin writes about a remarkable man, Will Allen, who has dedicated much of his life to bringing good food to everyone, especially those who live in the cities. As a young boy growing up,
“bowls of peas, greens, and his favorite – lima beans with ham – covered the kitchen table.
"My mother often fixed enough food for thirty,” Will says. “We never had a car or TV, but we always had good food.”"
For Will, good food equaled good times.
