Community Food Security in United States Cities
Posted by Johns Hopkins University on March 2, 2015
The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future (CLF) recently completed an
updated report on Community Food Security. Community food security (CFS) is a
concept that represents a subset of food security oriented toward the
community level rather than the individual, national, or global levels, and
seeks to account for the social, political, and economic context of food
Building on a previous literature review, which included research up to 2009,
the new report, titled Community Food Security in United States Cities: A
Survey of the Scientific Literature Volume II, synthesizes the latest research
and grey literature, and identifies gaps where further research is needed.
The report was designed to be user-friendly, with each chapter written as a
stand-alone reference on a given CFS topic, such as evaluation of community
food security interventions, food policy councils, CFS history and theory, and
Community Food Security in United States Cities: A Survey of the Scientific
Literature Volume II was written by Wei-ting Chen, Megan Clayton, and Anne
Palmer. A limited number of hard copies will be printed and available for
distribution, and the report is also available on CLF’s website.
