The Center for Regional Food Studies at the University of Arizona just published a commentary: "Leveraging university resources to build awareness, support regional food policy, and disrupt dominant narratives guiding food-based development: Examples from University of Arizona’s Center for Regional Food Studies," by Laurel Bellante, Megan A. Carney, and Gigi Owen.

CRFS’s recent initiatives include its:

Food Systems Research Lab, which fosters town-gown collaboration on local food policy, and

Future of Food and Social Justice Project, which focuses on storytelling, especially by those voices less heard in the food system, such as Indigenous stakeholders.

CRFS has been a JAFSCD Shareholder since 2017, the first year of our innovative community-supported journal model to support open access of all JAFSCD content. Their support, along with our annual partners, other shareholders, and library shareholders, make open access possible!
