Ecology of Food and Nutrition (EFN) promotes scholarly discussion and engagement on the holistic and cross-cultural dimensions of food and nutrition. Articles published in this journal focus on foods and food systems in terms of their utilization to satisfy human nutritional needs and improve health and well-being. The journal also publishes articles that examine how ecological, social, and cultural factors relate to food, food cultures, and nutrition. Only a handful of journals publish articles that explicitly address the intersections of food and nutrition, biology and culture, and policy and practice from a holistic and global perspective. It is this kind of scholarship that EFN seeks to promote. This issue of EFN includes seven articles representing studies conducted in Brazil, Ethiopia, South Africa, United States, Turkey, and Zimbabwe. Collectively, the articles included in this issue explore how communities respond to household food insecurity. The articles reinforce the concept of food sovereignty and autonomy, child health, and women’s health in culturally diverse regions of the world.
