The Center's signature food systems research project, Enhancing Food Security in the Northeast through Regional Food Systems (EFSNE), has issued several research briefs that serve to distill peer-reviewed journal articles authored by one or more project team members into 2-4 page documents intended for a general audience.

Briefs describe the issue(s) addressed by a particular research paper, outline the study's objectives, methods, and findings, and discuss the implications and applications of the findings. In addition to the titles below, the project team has several more briefs planned for release in the coming months. If you'd like to be notified when new briefs are posted, email Kristen Devlin ( to be added to the mailing list.
