Australian Food, Society and Culture Network - This network has been established to allow researchers and policy makers located in Australia who are interested in the social and cultural aspects of food and eating to connect with each other. It is hoped this network will foster interdisciplinary projects and other research synergies.

Food Stories is an interactive website, designed primarily for KS3 and KS4 citizenship and geography students. It traces the changes that have taken place in the UK's food culture over the last century. Students can play with colourful animations and listen to audio interviews from the British Library Sound Archive to investigate the ways in which food relates to identity, cultural diversity, the environment, technology, farming, shopping, travel and much more.
The Association for the Study of Food and Society is a multidisciplinary international organisation dedicated to exploring the complex relationships among food, culture, and society. The ASFS publishes a useful list of course outlines with bibliographies on topics relevant to the sociology of food, food anthropology, agriculture and society etc, which some members might find useful.
