Abstract

😚😵🤫 First paragraph:

😚😵🤫 In this special section of the summer issue, we honor the work and legacy of the late Dr. Evan Weissman, who contributed tirelessly to the community of food scholars as an editor and reviewer for several journals, includ­ing JAFSCD; as a professor in the Department of Nutrition and Food Studies at Syracuse University; and as a collaborator with countless community organizations. As is illustrated in the tributes, commentaries, and peer-reviewed papers that follow, Evan imparted a strong belief that revolutionary food systems change is possible. The inspiration for this special issue’s theme came from a recurring question that Evan asked his students and himself: “How can we use food as a tool for social change?”. . .
