Feeding the world without the sun?

I've always been curious about how we could keep people alive without sunlight after some horrific sunlight-ending event like a supervolcano or nuclear war. The Wool series is an example of something that addresses this. Can anyone recommend other apocalyptic fiction or alt-history that covers this topic specifically, or anything similar? Thank you!
