The American News Service

View Complete ANS List

The American News Service (ANS), founded by Frances Moore Lappé and Paul Martin DuBois in 1995, was a project of the Center for Living Democracy. Over five years, its stories covering "America's search for solutions" appeared in over 300 newspapers and in almost half of the top 100 newspapers by circulation. Subscribers included the Boston Globe and USA Today Weekend. ANS was supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the MacArthur Foundation, and the Lilly Endowment, among others. The content of these articles, which ranges from environmental action to food pantries, remains extremely relevant, and several of the articles appear as sidebars in the 2003 Encyclopedia of Community (Berkshire / Sage Reference). Because these articles can be of great value to researchers who are studying a wide range of community issues, Berkshire Publishing, with the kind permission of Frances Moore Lappé, is also making the full archives available online, free of charge.
