About the Center

The Center for Regional Food Studies integrates community outreach, applied research, and student engagement to foster positive change around food in Southern Arizona, the U.S./Mexico borderlands, and regional food systems globally.

2020-2021 Annual Theme

This marks our second year of continuing with the theme of "Just Nourishment” to examine the ways that anti-Blackness pervades our food system at various scales – rendering uneven health outcomes and life chances – and to center an anti-racist praxis in identifying (nourishing) modes of collective healing.
