Food, Health, and the Environment

The Food, Health, and the Environment series presents the theories, evidence, and strategies that enable scholars, practitioners, and activists to identify and advance just and resilient food, health, and environmental systems. Titles in the series offer critical analyses of food production, distribution, and consumption, from the global to the local, unmasking the political, economic, cultural, and technological dimensions of existing food systems and illustrating pathways for transformation. Authors approach their subjects from diverse disciplines, theoretical frameworks, and methods, challenging existing approaches and thinking about food, and offering readers unique perspectives on current controversies. These may range from how the charitable food system stigmatizes the food insecure to the ways immigrant Latinx farmworkers can transition to farm owners and their efforts to use traditional—and sustainable—growing practices.
