TABLE Explainers are short, peer-reviewed introductions to concepts that are important for understanding food systems and food sustainability. All of our Explainers are peer-reviewed by experts in the topic. We aim for every piece to be reviewed by people who hold different viewpoints on the topic, to ensure that we have accurately described the parameters of the disagreements. To give feedback or suggest future Explainer topics, please contact Tara.

Some of the Explainers here were originally published on Foodsource, a free educational website that was run by the Food Climate Research Network, TABLE’s forerunner. The content on Foodsource has now been integrated into TABLE. Building Blocks are shorter explanations of single concepts; Chapters offer a structured introduction to food systems thinking, concerns and topics.
