Guest editors Martin Caraher and Alessio Cavicchi are calling for submissions to an edition of Emerald-published journal on food banks and emergency food provision. This special issue will feature contributions on food aid, food insecurity, and emergency food responses research. The editors are looking for submissions focused on empirical research; case studies; and technical, viewpoint, and review articles in particular.
The questions that submissions should answer can be, but are not limited to, as follows: What are food banks? What are the core components of a food bank? Are there cultural differences within and between countries? How do structures and models of provision differ between countries? What is the evidence that food banks address food insecurity or increase dependence and widen inequality and food insecurity? Who uses food banks and what are their opinions of food banks? Are there other emerging examples of food aid that offer new and innovative solutions as alternatives to simply providing those in need with food?
Manuscripts need to be between 3,000 and 6,000 words and formatted according to the journal author guidelines. Submissions must be received by February 1, 2014 through the online submission system Scholar One Manuscripts. Authors must indicate their submission is for this special issue by selecting from the drop down menu on the online submission system.
