Community food systems are gaining attention nationwide as an important way to create links between farmers, consumers and communities in particular regions.  A recently released bibliography created by researchers with the UC Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources and the Agricultural Sustainability Institute at UC Davis documents the growing interest in community food systems, focusing mostly on analyses of food-related activities and trends within the United States.

The Community Food System Bibliography gathers published literature on local and regional food systems and categorizes the literature by key topics.  It can help students and researchers better understand the landscape of the literature, gaps and needs for future research; non-profits can use it to help them identify the potential successes and shortcomings of existing strategies and highlight opportunities for future work.
