An Annotated Bibliography on Structural Racism Present in the U.S. Food Systemcontains selected resources and publications focused on recent research and outreach on structural racism in the U.S. food system. The ninth edition of the resource, published in March 2022, contains 510 sources, including 25 new videos and 100 new journal citations. In recent editions, our video curation includes recordings from webinars that focused on the intersection of food systems and racial equity. All entries in the annotated bibliography are also available in Zotero, a free software that lets users easily save, manage, and cite sources.
