Abstract

COVID-19 has revealed new tensions and exacerbated old fragilities in global food systems, characterised by the systemic socio-economic reliance on invisible, unpaid and devalued work. We argue that, in the same way environmental concerns have become integral to the Sustainable Food Systems agenda, a social reproduction approach, informed by geographies of care, are essential for a critical analysis and the search for alternatives. By linking analytical concepts to examples from social movements, the commentary calls for a paradigm shift and a new research agenda involving these critical perspectives on resilient and sustainable food systems.
