Center Listserv

Join Our Listserv

The Center for Food Systems and Community Tranformation Listserv acts as a communication network for community members, pracitioners, researchers, students, and more who are focused on food systems and community transformation work. 

Key series on our listserv:

  • Every Friday, we share annotations of five articles related to our themes of food systems and community transformation that we find meaningful and important to share. For examples of the articles we have included in this series, visit our News Archive. We welcome our listserv members to suggest articles to be shared through the series.
  • We also share bi-monthly Center Updates that include our own programmatic updates and events as well as events, webinars, professional opportunities (calls for proposals from journals and conferences, grant and scholarship opportunities, etc.), and employment opportunities from our partners, colleagues, and friends. We welcome participants to share events, opportunities, and announcements to be included in these updates.

Examples of feedback from our listserv members:

  • "I appreciate your curated emails so much! Thank you for highlighting our humanity in this hard and joyful work we do."
  • "You put together exceptional newsletters! I enjoy reading the articles each time and appreciate your work."
  • "Thank you for the monthly newsletter - a great compilation of food system resources.  I also have been enjoying your weekly “Five articles worth reading” emails."
