  • Communication and building social capital in community supported

    • Authors: Ella Furness, Angelina Sanderson Bellamy, Adrian Clear, Samantha Mitchell Finnigan, J. Elliot Meador, Susanna Mills, Alice Milne, Ryan Sharp
      Pages: 1–16 - 1–16
      Abstract: Community supported agriculture (CSA) schemes (programs) provide an alternative means for ob­taining produce, through direct purchase from farms. They are also often driven by a vision of transforming the current mainstream food system and seek to build a community of people who sup­port this vision. Social capital refers to the net­works and ties between people and groups and the impact of these ties on access to influence, infor­mation, opportunity, and ability to organize. Social capital is built by CSAs and helps foster and stabi­lize the grassroots agricultural innovations that are needed for the development of sustainable food systems. Using the concept of social capital, we studied communication methods of four CSAs in the UK, examining the interactions between CSAs and their members and within each of their mem­bership groups. We carried out in-depth interviews with 49 CSA members to establish what interac­tions they had with their CSA and with other mem­bers, and analyzed our data thematically to identify the characteristics of interactions that were impor­tant to participants. We consider how our research may benefit CSA organizations by enabling them to learn what their members want and to learn about the varied ways in which members conceptu­alize their experiences of community derived from their membership. We found that the various CSA communication strate­gies, which consist of fre­quent and varying virtual and face-to-face interac­tions, are able to promote development of both bridging and bonding social capital. Over­all, there is a desire for social connec­tion in CSA member­ships. Furthermore, in CSAs where mem­bers can interact easily, there is potential for CSA member­ship to provide mem­bers with communi­cation that is important as a source of both knowl­edge and social connection. CSAs can maximize both social capital and mem­ber satisfaction by using a range of communication media and methods to meet their members’ circumstances and preferences.

  • Adaptations and innovations

    • Authors: Colleen Hammelman, Dylan Turner
      Pages: 1–20 - 1–20
      Abstract: During the global COVID-19 pandemic, food systems have been affected by supply-chain disruptions, shifting employment trends, and increasing prices that change organization and business operations, increase food insecurity, and influence the broader economy. Much of the early scholarship regarding pandemic trends pointed to root causes in the corporate food regime and called for seeing the crisis as an opportunity for transformational change. Relying on surveys and in-depth interviews with food system stakeholders, this paper describes the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on food businesses and organizations in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. We examined the challenges created during the pandemic and related responses by stakeholders. Our research found that the pandemic’s impacts have been mixed. Most stakeholders identified both barriers and opportunities, reporting great upheaval and disruption but also new opportunities for innovation and collaboration. We argue that, while many positive innovations and quick responses were generated, ongoing challenges are indicative of widespread food system vulnerabilities created by a corporate food regime that produces thin margins while limiting the ability of stakeholders to pursue transformational change. Much of the existing literature considers the pandemic’s effects on individual producers and eaters, as well as large-scale structural shifts, yet less attention has been paid to the responses of food system organizations and businesses. This research contributes to food systems literature through its focus on food system actors to better understand how the food system is changing during the pandemic.

  • Local innovation in food system policies

    • Authors: Amy Carrad, Lizzy Turner, Nick Rose, Karen Charlton, Belinda Reeve
      Pages: 1–25 - 1–25
      Abstract: Australian local governments undertake a range of activities that can contribute to a healthy, sustain­able, and equitable food system. However, their engagement in food system governance is highly uneven, and only a handful have developed dedi­cated food system policies. This article reports on case studies of food system policy development and implementation in six local governments in the states of New South Wales and Victoria. The main motivators for policy and program development were to improve environmental sustainability, reduce food waste, improve diet-related health and food security, and support local, sustainable agri­culture. Key steps included consulting with the community, identifying local food-related issues, and developing policy solutions. Local government activities targeted many dimensions of the food system, and policy implementation processes included hiring dedicated food system employees, creating partnerships with organizations outside local government, advocacy to higher levels of gov­ernment for policy and legislative change, and pro­gram evaluation. The research also identified key enablers of and barriers to policy development and implementation, including factors internal to local government (e.g., presence/absence of local cham­pions, high-level leadership, and a supportive inter­nal culture) as well as important state- and federal-level constraints, including absence of comprehen­sive policy frameworks for food and nutrition, of dedicated funding for local government food sys­tem work, and of leadership for food system gov­ernance from higher levels of government. The authors conclude with recommendations for strengthening the role of Australian local govern­ments in creating a healthy, sustainable, and equita­ble food system, applicable to both local govern­ments and to Australian state and federal govern­ments. These recommendations may also be useful to local governments in other national jurisdictions.

    • Authors: Laura Florick, Chul Park

      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has led to many disruptions and challenges in local and national food systems in America. Many farms and market gardens were forced to innovate quickly and take action to survive ongoing disruption as these businesses struggled with finances and distribution of products among other challenges. Many small-scale, local farming operations in particular were able to respond to these disruptions in unique ways, which may offer useful insight into how to better prepare small farming communities for public health and other kinds of disasters in the future. This pilot study aims to better understand how COVID-19 affected the local food system in the region of Northwest Arkansas in the mid-southern United States and how small-scale, direct-sales farmers responded to the pandemic, through a survey and interview about their experiences from 2019 to 2021. Participating farmers reported changes in farming procedures and challenges in owning or working on their farms due to ongoing climate-related environmental issues or issues specific to the pandemic, such as distributing products, utilizing financial and other resources of support, and partnering with local supply-chain partners and community members to ensure local businesses’ survival during COVID-19. This pilot study can provide insight into how local farming operations and their regional and smaller-scale supply chain partners have built and utilized community resilience strategies to survive COVID-19 challenges in the Northwest region of Arkansas. A statewide follow-up study will be conducted to observe how these producers navigated these challenges on a larger scale, including in different regions of Arkansas following the start of the pandemic.

  • THE ECONOMIC PAMPHLETEER: The challenge: Making good food accessible

    • Authors: John Ikerd
      Pages: 1–3 - 1–3
      Abstract: First paragraphs: In a previous column, I made the case that enough wholesome, nutritious, and sustainably produced food is affordable for everyone (Ikerd, 2022). However, the fact that good food is afford­able for everyone doesn’t mean good food is accessible to everyone or easy to locate, acquire, and prepare. For many, accessibility is a greater obstacle than affordability, and those who face the greatest challenges of affordability also face the greatest challenges in accessibility. As I pointed out in my previous column, farmers receive an average of only about 14% or US$1,120 of a typical US$8,000 household food budget. The rest, US$6,880, goes to pay the costs of processing, packaging, transportation, advertis­ing, and other marketing costs (Ikerd, 2022, p. 3). Some of these marketing costs are necessary to transform farm commodities into finished food products and thus cannot be avoided. . . .

  • Sustainable food procurement by the University of California’s
           health systems

    • Authors: Sapna Thottathil
      Pages: 1–15 - 1–15
      Abstract: Across the country, hospitals are buying more sustainable food and passing internal policies in support of sustainable food procurement. This reflective essay describes the results of the sustain­able procurement goals and policy of the Univer­sity of California’s five health systems from 2009 to 2021. Based on my observations as a staff person in the University of California and my participation in internal meetings with foodservice and sustaina­bility staff, I discuss the evolution of the University of California’s sustainable food procurement policy goals and its definition of “sustainable.” I describe staff and programmatic support for purchasing environmentally sustainable food and beverages and the growth of the University of California’s sustainable food purchases as a percentage of its hospitals’ food budgets. This essay also explores staff debates about the sustainability of sourcing poultry with the label of “no antibiotics ever” after a 2020 COVID-19 outbreak at a poultry processing facility in California that led to the deaths of several workers. These debates about labor and working conditions in poultry supply chains from the five University of California health systems offer insights into ongoing challenges and oppor­tunities for institutional food procurement and policy to change the food system utilizing existing supply chains and third-party certifications and label claims. The University of California’s experi­ences also illustrate the ongoing need for farm-to-institution and farm-to-hospital efforts to better integrate values around working conditions in supply chains into sustainable procurement goals.

  • A decade of the Missouri Hunger Atlas

    • Authors: Steven Henness, Bill McKelvey, Darren Chapman, Gloria Mangoni, Mary Hendrickson
      Pages: 1–16 - 1–16
      Abstract: For over a decade, researchers at the University of Missouri Interdisciplinary Center for Food Security (ICFS) have produced five editions of the Missouri Hunger Atlas. Through a series of indicator maps and tables, the Atlas engages readers visually to help them understand the extent of local food inse­curity across the state. The Atlas also assesses the performance of public and private programs that help people struggling to obtain sufficient healthy food. In this reflective essay, we discuss the pro­cess of creating the Atlas, the choice of indicators and data acquisition, the evolution of the Atlas over time, and how various groups use the Atlas for policy and action. The Atlas has become a go-to resource for a wide range of users, including policymakers, academics, food bank staff, Exten­sion specialists, and advocates for low-income fam­ilies. The first ten years of the Atlas have demon­strated that measurement is a dynamic process, requiring ongoing adjustments by re­searchers through discourse with data providers, stakeholder groups, and communities. Given the popularity of the Atlas and the availability of com­parable second­ary data for other state and county geographies, replication of this model by other states is feasible.

  • Manifesto for a regionally oriented food industry

    • Authors: Marco Ginanneschi
      Pages: 1–5 - 1–5
      Abstract: First paragraph: In the movie Snowpiercer, Oscar-winning Korean filmmaker Oscar Bong Joon-ho portrayed the future of food as a brown gelatine bar made of insect proteins (Ramos-Niaves, 2021). According to Jacques Attali (2019), unless the current system changes, within a few years the great majority of people will eat only standardized and processed food. No pleasure will be left to their palate. Only the rich will be able to afford healthy, diverse, and tasty food. . . .

  • Five practical strategies for those who work for food systems change

    • Authors: Antonio Roman-Alcalá
      Pages: 1–4 - 1–4
      Abstract: First paragraph: In 2021, I completed my Ph.D. dissertation research on Californian food movements (Roman-Alcalá, 2021b).[1] That participatory research process deepened my preexisting engagement in these movements as an organizer, urban farmer, policy advocate, educator, and writer. You can find the 400 pages of details online, but the main thrust of the research concerned how various subsectors of food movements describe and manifest “emancipatory” politics, and how they do and do not work across various lines of difference. Secondarily, it concerned how food movements oppose—but also potentially intersect with—resurgent right-wing politics. Converging across differences is an essential challenge and task in order to fundamentally transform the food system, push back right-wing gains, and achieve a broader emancipatory political agenda. In this short commentary, I offer some insights on these topics from the research and my over 18 years of involvement in emancipatory (food) politics. . . .

  • IN THIS ISSUE: Fragility–and resilience–in food systems

    • Authors: Duncan Hilchey
      Pages: 1–4 - 1–4
      Abstract: First paragraphs: This summer issue (volume 11, issue 4) includes papers on a wide range of food systems topics, many of which relate to both the fragility and the resilience of food systems. Gracing our cover is Julia Slocum, who was the owner and operator of Lacewing Acres, a small certified-organic vegetable farm in Ames, Iowa, from 2012 to 2019. (She is now a first-year doctoral student in counseling psychology at Iowa State Uni­versity.) In this issue, you will read about her decision to close her farming operation in Ending Lacewing Acres: Toward amplifying microperspectives on farm closure (co-authored by Abby Dubisar at Iowa State University). Julia’s experience highlights the challenge of being a beginning farmer in the U.S. Small-scale, community-based farming is certainly one of the most difficult occupations to take up. For at least two-thirds of each year, it is an all-consuming endeavor. In daylight hours, small local growers manage dozens of crops (each of which has its own requirements to flourish); they may have to manage co-workers, customers, per­haps CSA members, a retail operation, wholesale accounts, and so on. In their evenings, they track produc­tion and sales, fill out surveys and tax forms, and nurse aches and injuries received during the day. Imagine going to bed exhausted and then having nightmares about crop failures or injuries or even lawsuits. Some­how, they must find time to recover and carve out personal and family time. . . .
