More Than Just Food

Garrett M. Broad

University of California Press

This chapter focuses on Community Services Unlimited's (CSU) efforts for community-based food justice across the United States, exploring particularly the networks and narratives that came to characterize the organization's communication ecology devoted to community-based organizing. These narratives promote food and justice, as well as articulate how systemic inequities and developing alternative community institutions through networked partnerships produce local food system struggles. The chapter also interrogates what makes food a particularly viable entry point for this type of community development and considers the obstacles faced by CSU and other food justice groups who aimed to incorporate localized activism into an agenda for sustainable community change.

Keywords:   Community Services Unlimited, food justice, communication ecology, food system struggles, systemic inequities, networked partnerships, community development
